"Every child deserves a summer of learning and joy." That's the message from the president of the San Diego Unified Board of Education after the San Diego Foundation awarded $12.3 million in grants to 90 nonprofit organizations offering summer enrichment programs to San Diego Unified School District students, Fox 5 San Diego reports.

The grants are intended to support academic and socio-emotional development opportunities through the Level Up SD afternoon enrichment program, in partnership with the SDUSD.

"We are inspired by the renewed commitment our nonprofit community has made to San Diego Unified students for free, fun, and enriching summer programs for the second summer in a row," the San Diego Foundation's Pamela Gray Payton said in a statement.

Level Up SD is offered in addition to the district's morning summer school program and is open to all K-12 students enrolled for the 2022-23 academic year.

The program features free activities like building robots or participating in performing arts such as dance, music, or theater.

"All students will have a chance to build memories and experiences at some of San Diego's iconic venues, including our museums, performing arts institutions, beaches, and parks," Whitehurst-Payne said.

According to the district, nearly 10,000 students have registered for one of 20,000 available program seats to date.
