2022 Summer Rising Program

The Summer Rising program, a collaboration between the New York City’s Department of Education (DOE) and the Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD), provides academic support and school-based enrichment programming led by Community Based Organizations (CBOs) for students in grades K through 8. Students will have daily opportunities to play, create, explore, and develop new interests with peers and adults to encourage curiosity and an interest in learning. The 2022 Summer Rising program enrollment period is now open, and interested members are encouraged to apply early to secure a spot at their desired location.
