Fun and Diverse Programs 4 All Kids
It’s more than what happens in the classroom that adds up to a student receiving a great education. Fun and diverse learning opportunities ensure that youth and young adults will develop their own creative pursuits, expand their education, and prepare for career success.
Sherwood Forest’s STEM Program has been effective at helping to close the summer achievement gap among the youth we serve while encouraging a sense of curiosity about science and nature.

Families are having to make tough financial decisions, so providing them a summer experience they can afford where families know their children will be loved, feel safe and appreciated for who they are while having a learning experience that is fun and engaging guides them to be their best selves is invaluable.

I really appreciate your leadership in creating and collecting resources that “small shops” would not be able to develop on their own. With everyone usually in our own silos, Blueprint4 provides a helpful point for collaboration and affirmation.
Blueprint4SummerSTL’s continued funding ensures that students from all backgrounds can participate in high-quality arts education during the summer months.
