Summer enrichment programs provide academic support including academic enrichment, recreation activities such as art and music, technology education, sports and fitness activities, and activities to develop a young person's leadership and social skills. For more information on these available programs, please read the information below!

Community Learning Centers (CLCs):

The focus of the Summer CLCs is to provide expanded academic enrichment opportunities to help students bridge the academic gap between school years. Additionally, CLC programs provide youth development activities, technology education, art, music and recreation activities, and family programs. Milwaukee area community based organizations work collaboratively with the MPS to operate this program. Please view the following documents for more information:
