About Children's Services

Project Learn helps close the achievement gap through programs designed to help inner-city children overcome the hurdles of growing up in abject poverty. We work with elementary school children ages 5 through 12 from Bridgeport’s most underserved neighborhoods, in two community-based centers; Summerfield United Methodist Church on the East Side of Bridgeport, and the Gary Crooks Memorial Community Center at PT Barnum Apartments. Our after-school program emphasizes academics, offering homework help and tutoring in basic subjects, the use of computers and other learning tools, and a variety of positive recreational opportunities, as well as healthy snacks. Participants enrolled in the after-school program attend Monday-Friday with 78% of enrolled participants attending on a weekly basis.

Summer Program

The Summer STEAM Day Camp is a six-week enrichment program designed to keep previous participants in the after-school program involved, as well as to engage potential students for the upcoming school year. The six-week program is carefully structured to offer fun recreational games, sports and cultural enrichment, with academic activities carefully interwoven throughout the day. Project Learn staff members employ grade-specific techniques designed to improve reading, writing, math skills and citizenship. Our goal is to help our young students develop good study habits and cultivate a desire in them to put their very best effort forward and succeed academically. Participants enrolled in the summer program attend Monday-Friday with 95% of enrolled participants attending on a daily basis.
