9th Grade Counts

9th Grade Counts

NAYA’s 9th Grade Leaders is a free summer program that focuses on improving leadership and academic skills through culturally-relevant and experiential education. This program is free, 4 weeks long, and occurs Monday through Thursday. Breakfast and lunch is provided every day. Check out the applications below.

This program’s goal is to support students, and help them develop the skills that allow them to think about their future and plan for it — particularly as they make a successful transition into high school.

Students will participate in service learning projects, academic and recreational activities, cultural arts classes, and field trips designed to help them better prepare for their transitions into their high school, college, and career.

Students entering 9th grade in the fall are eligible for the program. Please note that Space is limited, and the deadline for applications is FRIDAY, JUNE 15TH.
