CFVI awarded a grant to VI Village Academy from the Friends and Family Fund to support their 2021 Family Connection Summer Camp addressing the learning loss experienced by students who were out of the classroom due to COVID. The 5 week in-person summer camp program included 30 students in prekindergarten and kindergarten. Five days a week, for six hours, students received reinforcement in essential kindergarten skills and ongoing classroom-support services while working in classrooms, outside, and at varied sites around the islands of St. Thomas and St. John. Funds were used to implement the program, including providing laptops to the students.
