City of Binghamton, New York

Summer Literacy Program

The 2012 "Summer Literacy Program" was a 6 week pilot program located at Horace Mann Elementary School.  The program was a collaboration between the City of Binghamton Youth Bureau, City Parks and Recreation Department, and Binghamton School District.  The literacy program was designed to retain/enhance literacy skills for summer fun participants, ages 5-10.

As a result of the program's success, the "Summer Enrichment in the City" program was launched in 2013.
