Starting on June 12, 100 Rainbow Summer Program scholars will be welcomed to Rainbow Mennonite Church with a group of energetic interns cheering “G-O-O-D M-O-R-N-I-N-G GOOD MORNING, GOOD MORNING!”
Each day scholars will start with a time of singing, cheering, and hearing a Read Aloud guest from the community. Then they will work on reading skills, STEAM education, entrepreneurship, health, and conflict resolution. Thanks to our many partners—Rosedale Development Association, Harvesters, Kansas City Community Gardens, the Center for Conflict Resolution, and more, scholars will receive a multi-dimensional educational experience this summer.
Some may have noticed our recent name change: Rainbow Summer Program was formerly known as Rainbow Freedom School. But with an expanding curriculum, and a goal of providing after-school programming in the future (in addition to the summer program), the name was changed to encompass the vision of the program moving forward.
Rainbow Summer Program is a program of a small nonprofit, Sharing Community in Rosedale, who is providing the oversight and direction for this exciting youth programming in Rosedale. We are proud to be in our eleventh summer of offering summer programming and are excited to see what the future holds.
