Cityspan develops Summer Learning Program Locator for the Detroit metropolitan area
Parents in Detroit and the surrounding area will use Cityspan’s program locator tool this summer to find quality learning programs for their children. Funded by the United Way for Southeastern Michigan in partnership with the Youth Development Resource Center, the Summer Spark Program Locator is designed to prevent summer learning loss by facilitating access to high-quality summer programs offered by local educational agencies. Available as a public resource at unitedwaysem.org/summerspark/, the locator integrates with Google maps to display relevant programs based on grade, location, and interests. Local agencies can login and update their summer program information on the fly, ensuring families have real-time data regarding program availability.
The YDRC is part of a larger investment by the Skillman Foundation to support youth development in the Detroit region.
