Preventing Summer Learning Loss and Fostering Reading Engagement
Boys and Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County
Program directors at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County were looking for programming to support literacy growth and engagement with reading over the summer months.
Program directors implemented The Juice across 12 of their sites. After using The Juice for 6 weeks, they noticed:
- Increased Awareness of Current Events: Students developed an increased awareness of current events.
- Engagement with Reading: Students were more engaged in reading and reported more enjoyment in reading at the end of the program.
- Increased Participation in Discussion: Students participated in discussions with their club members after reading The Juice. More students reported participating in family discussion at home.
