Black Child Development Institute of Greensboro, Inc. is excited to offer a literacy-based summer enrichment program for the 7th year! Our program may have a new name, but our focus on helping your children (those currently enrolled in GCS's 1st - 8th grades) combat summer reading slide and learn to truly enjoy reading remains the same! “Summer Slide” is the term used when children fall behind over the summer due to insufficient access to academic resources. Our goal is to provide a quality summer program that includes high quality literacy enrichment and parent/family involvement to support your children and show them the importance of education!

Thanks to a new partnership with New Zion Missionary Baptist Church, BCDI-G’s program participants will not only combat the effects of summer slide but will be engaging in leadership development, afternoon enrichment activities, and weekly field trips.
