Hours of Brain Gain

Summer learning loss has a devastating effect on the kids in our community – especially those who are unable to participate in enriching summer activities. The loss of skills and knowledge during the summer affects all kids – especially under resourced children. Boys & Girls Clubs of America presents Summer Brain Gain – a fun, interactive learning program designed for summer in the Club.
