Help create lasting systemic change for kids

Nowhere in education is there more inequity than in access to out-of-school time learning.  These inequities do not go away when the school year ends.  

By the time they reach sixth grade, kids from households that are low-income spend 6,000 hours LESS in after-school and summer learning activities than their peers in middle-income households. 

At EDMO, we are committed to creating opportunities for kids and communities that have unequal access to learning programs.

This summer, we are partnering with Oakland Unified School District to run a full-day FREE summer program for 150 students in grades K - 4 that integrates literacy curriculum taught by credentialed teachers with hands-on STEAM and SEL activities led by EDMO instructors.
