Arete's Baylander Event

What is the Baylander Event? Our Annual Baylander Event allows Arete Education to promote our summer programs offerings, higlight the successes of our students and schools, and engage stakeholders in financially supporting our upcoming summer programs that continue to offer students the ever-exanding free opportunities over the summer months.

Investment in Summer Programs

Our students are faced with a 6,000 hour learning gap compared to children of well resourced families. Arete's summer programs are 100% free to students (95% low-income, 99% students of color) and provide hands-on experiences, reversing summer learning loss while building students' social and cultural capital. Arete summer programs give students a competitive edge as they embark on their middle school, high school, and college careers.
