Last summer, nearly 400 underserved youth from the Dallas area received hands-on enrichment to help them stay on par with their peers in school, thanks to the fourth annual Young Warriors Summer Learning Program. The signature project of the Heart of a Warrior Charitable Foundation, the Young Warriors Summer Learning Program is designed to reduce the learning gap often seen in lower-income students when they return to school in the fall. The eight-week summer academic enrichment program provides instruction in mathematics, science, Spanish, nutrition, leadership and volunteerism as well as providing culturally educational field trips that add to the students’ quality-of-life experiences.
“Our goal is to provide a curriculum that keeps students engaged, on par with their peers and academically inspired during the summer months,” said Warrior. “I am pleased that Misha has joined our organization and will help us carry out our mission to ensure not only the academic success of these children, but the self-awareness and pride that comes from true accomplishment.”
