Announcing the Education Exchange Corps 2015 Summer Leadership Academy

The Education Exchange Corps 2015 Summer Leadership Academy is on!

Last year was the first time since 2008 we did not run a summer program. St. Louis City's public school district could not keep our partner school open last summer. Instead, we put our resources into working with the Ferguson Library to help teach kids when their school district was closed in August, and then again in November.

We took this last year to further develop our summer program. We researched a lot, we met a lot of people, we even tested our ideas on a group of very welcoming teachers willing to give us feedback. 

We found a new partner this summer that has been incredibly welcoming in the same neighborhood we were working in. We're excited to work with Most Holy Trinity Catholic School and Academy, who will be hosting our Summer Leadership Academy!

As it has always been, our academy is free for kids and families. Kids need high quality, stimulating, and fun summer programs, and we are happy to provide our covertly academic/overtly game-like summer program to our kids.

And we'd like your help too! If you're interested in volunteering as a long-term teacher, visiting as a one-time presenter, or providing other support, please visit our website to learn how you can, or send me an email at

When: July 6-24; 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM, Monday - Friday
