The BOOST Network, a partnership with the Paso del Norte Health Foundation and the United Way of El Paso County, is launching their Spring Into Summer campaign that aims to connect parents and families to out-of-school time (OST) providers and encourage youth participation in summer programs.
As the 2020-2021 school year comes to a close and the summer season approaches in the region, the BOOST Network is emphasizing the importance of youth participation in OST programs throughout the summer months.
“By participating in summer programming, the region’s youth are able to continue their educational, social, and physical development while they are out of school for the summer,” BOOST Network officials shared.
As a service to families in west Texas, southern New Mexico, Juarez, the BOOST Network provides a free resource for parents to find
the perfect OST program for their child through their Find A Program page on their website.
“In an effort to inform families in the border region about the importance of summer youth programs, the BOOST Network is kicking off its Spring Into Summer Facebook Live series this week that will feature OST programs from throughout the region discussing how summer programs can help families in the region overcome some of the education, health and wellbeing challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused, and how the BOOST Network can help parents and guardians find the right program for their children,” organizers added.
These virtual discussions will be hosted by the Paso del Norte Health Foundation, the El Paso Chihuahuas, and Univision Noticias 26. To attend any of the events, please visit the links below:
