RSBC Summer Youth Program

Mission Statement


To provide a safe and fun filled environment that promotes health, education, 

fellowship, and teamwork among the community and the Rising Star family.

RSBC Summer Youth Program will provide enrichment that helps children fall in love with reading, increases their self-esteem, and generates more positive attitudes towards learning.

Children are taught using a model curriculum that supports children and families around five essential components:

  • high quality academic enrichment;
  • parent and family involvement;
  • civic engagement and social action; 
  • intergenerational leadership development;
  • and nutrition, health and mental health.                                                                                                                                                                                                       
The RSBC Summer Youth Program affirms that reading is an important key to unlock the door to children's dreams and unlimited potential.  The books on which the Integrated Reading Curriculum is based represent the work of the country's best writers and illustrators. 

The afternoons consist of fun, educational activities that enhance the IRC and the RSBC Summer Youth Program  model of cultural enrichment, community involvement, conflict resolution, and social action.  Activities may include arts and crafts, dance, music, field trips, sports and much more....
