In an effort to meet the needs of low-income students, a collaborative effort between the University of Alabama at Birmingham and the Hoover City School system was initiated. The university and school system have collaborated for the past four years to change the nature of summer programs, both for students and teachers. This article describes this collaborative venture, which has resulted in a unique summer experience for elementary students. (Contains 2 tables.)
