A new fact sheet and infographics (coming soon!) on the state of summer learning in Kentucky, which is based on data from the Afterschool Alliance’s 2020 America After 3PM survey, can be found on our Kentucky After 3PM page.
In April 2021, KYOSA launched a survey to learn more about what Kentucky’s out-of-school time programs are doing for kids this summer. The survey was sent out to the following groups asking them to help us collect detailed information about what’s happening across the state.
- 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLCs)
- Licensed school-age child care providers
- Family Resource and Youth Services Centers (FRYSCs)
- Jefferson County OST Council
- Kentucky Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs
- Kentucky Alliance of YMCAs
- Partners for Education at Berea College
- Kentucky School Board Association (KSBA)
The survey is also being shared via KYOSA’s website (see above), email list, and social media pages and will remain open through August 2021. New responses will be added to the map once a week.
As is the case in other states, summer learning programs in Kentucky are overseen and operated by a diverse group of programs, organizations, and agencies, such as Boys & Girls Clubs, public libraries and Parks & Recreation departments, local YMCAs, licensed school-age child care providers, faith-based organizations, businesses, and schools. Therefore, no single database or list currently exists that captures all summer learning programs for every city or county across Kentucky.
While we at KYOSA are working hard to gather information on as many summer learning programs as we can this summer and make it easily accessible to the public, we are dependent on the information that program providers share with us. Therefore, not all summer learning programs will be reflected on the map.
If there are no programs in your community showing up on our map, reach out to the following organizations/agencies in your area to see what they are doing for kids this summer:
- Public K-12 schools, including Family Resource and Youth Services Centers (FRYSCs) and 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLCs)
- Private K-12 schools
- Licensed child care centers/providers
- Public libraries
- Parks & Recreation departments
- 4-H programs
- Boys & Girls Clubs: You can use this tool to see if there is a Boys & Girls Club in your area.
Just click here to take KYOSA’s 2021 Summer Program Survey. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete, and your responses will help schools/districts, program providers, community partners, families, and other stakeholders come together to develop long-term partnerships and sustainable summer learning ecosystems. KYOSA is reviewing responses and updating the map on a weekly basis throughout the summer to ensure information stays up-to-date.
