The OSLN seeks to improve communication to increase equitable access to summer programming. In 2016 we created an interactive and informative guide to summer learning opportunities in Oakland. You can use the online listing of summer programs at Oakland.inplay.org.
The OSLN seeks to collect and utilize data to raise awareness of the benefits of equitable, high quality summer programming. We are establishing a system for collecting and sharing data in order to better understand the needs of the children and youth being served (and not served), the programs available, and the unmet need for additional quality summer learning opportunities.
The OSLN seeks to support high quality summer learning through continuous improvement. We are developing a system of support in which the OSLN member organizations raise awareness about the value of CQI, provide technical assistance, and learn from each other.
