Out-of-School Program Aims to Close Opportunity Gap

There’s growing research that shows the positive impact of afterschool and summer programs on young people, especially in high poverty communities.

In the Richmond area, the non-profit Higher Achievement operates year-round out-of school programming. For Learning Curve, WCVE's Catherine Komp stopped by one center to find out more. She spoke with Tyren Frazier, Executive Director of Higher Achievement Richmond; Ronee Davis, Binford Center Director; and Millena Brown, a 6th grade scholar in the program.
