Summer LIT!

JUNE 28 – AUGUST 5, 2021

A FREE Arts-integrated Literacy Program!

Summer LIT! is a six-week, in-person summer program that provides K-5 students a fun and engaging arts-integrated literacy learning experience. In partnership with Baltimore City Public Schools, Young Audiences will operate six Summer LIT! program sites across Baltimore City in 2021.

By providing opportunities for creative, hands-on learning through the arts, the program helps improve students’ reading and writing skills and prevent summer learning loss.

Key components of the program include:

  • Daily Arts Integrated Literacy Instruction:

    Each day, students will read books centered on themes of Identity, Community, Justice, and/or Activism and then engage in arts activities (theater, dance, visual arts) that connect to literacy connections in the book.

  • Small Group Tutoring

  • Weekly Artist Residencies:

    Featuring art forms such as tap dancing, songwriting, puppetry, and more!

  • Weekly STEM Projects

  • Weekly Community Partner Visits:

    Experiences may include STEM activities with Port Discovery, an ecology lesson with Irvine Nature Center, and more!

  • Daily Guided Recess

Registration will open in May 2021 for students who attend the host sites during the school year and will extend to all Baltimore City Public Schools students in mid-May.
