Dear Friends of ForWords;

First and foremost, we send this in the hope that you and your family are safe and well.ForWords has been called upon to help those students who are the most vulnerable in our community. We have retained all of our staff, who are volunteering extra time to assist any student who needs help. We are working with schools, reaching out to students with no smartphones or computers. And we are providing academic summer programs, food, computers, masks, and a quiet and safe place for students to work and take college entrance exams. We are able to do this only because of your support.

ForWords Summer Program Bridge to High School
This program prepares rising 9th graders for high school, focusing on crucial academic skills. This summer’s program has the largest number of students since its inception. These students are ready to learn!

This Summer Bridge program is being held virtually on multiple platforms. It lasts for 5 weeks, and each student earns 5 high
school academic credits before school starts.

ForWords programming for Bridge students will continue in the fall along with additional support to insure these students are adapting to high school and are fully engaged.
