We need your help to bring summer camp back for 10,000 students across the 5 boroughs.

We are kicking off bringing in person camp with an exciting summer Readathon for students in elementary, middle and high schools. The Readathon will feature authors, illustrators, and educators joining classes for read-alongs and discussions in June. Featured books include: My Friend by SAG Award winning actor Taye Diggs; Wild Symphony by best-selling author of the DaVinci Code Dan Brown; Fly Guy series by author Tedd Arnold; and Sunny Days by Jesse Byrd. Most exciting of all--funds raised will also support the launch of a student book publishing initiative. Our students will have the opportunity to work with leading authors and illustrators to write and publish their own stories!

By supporting our event, you make it possible for New York Edge to support students--and their working parents--to successfully return to school and to work. We will be welcoming 40,000 students to our in-person afterschool programs this fall. With you at our side, we will will ensure that our students are equipped to succeed academically and continue to support their working parents--many of whom are on the frontlines of the pandemic. Thank you for standing with us as we work to ensure safe, enriching in-person after school programs in academics, sports, the arts, and college and career readiness for our city’s students.
