Shaping Summer Experiences: Opportunities to promote healthy development and well-being for children and youth
Sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Wallace Foundation, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine convened a committee of experts in 2018 to study and prepare a report on the state of the sciences on how summertime experiences affect school age children across education, health, and safety. Released in late 2019, the report put forth a number of recommendations to inform federal, state, local, and organizational decision-makers on developing programs and policies to support the healthy development and learning of all children during the summer months. Committee members will join the webinar to speak about some of the recommendations, what action practitioners can take, and areas for future research.

Featured Speakers
Karl Alexander, John Dewey Professor Emeritus of Sociology, Johns Hopkins University
Nancy L. Deutsch, Professor, Director of Youth-Nex, University of Virginia
Chris Smith, President and Executive Director, Boston After School & Beyond
