Summertime in America for Latinx families and communities


Among Latinx or Hispanic families, the demand for summer programs, both met and unmet demand, is also strong. Half of Latinx or Hispanic children were in a summer program in 2019, or would have been enrolled in a program if one were available to them. For Latinx families, the summer is viewed as a time for infinite possibilities, where in addition to high demand for summer programs there are also high expectations for their children’s summer programs. The value of summer programs among Latinx families remained steadfast during the pandemic, with 4 in 5 Latinx parents agreeing with the statement that, “all young people deserve access to quality afterschool and summer programs.” (author abstract)
