Scholar Athlete Story
Brenda & Esme
For Brenda and Esme, the PT&E Summer Program is a safety net. Their parents work long hours and still cannot afford daycare during the summer, and both girls' success in school and health are at-risk.
These girls are learning, exercising, and building relationships for more than 250 hours every summer. At PT&E, underserved youth like Brenda and Esme are safe during the day and have supportive learning environment where they can thrive.
