Laugh and Learn Summer Playground Program


Laugh and Learn Playground program is in its third year with Teen Outreach, but is in its 11th year of existence. Teen Outreach assumed the program when NDAC closed in 2009. The program runs Monday through Friday from 10 AM to 4 PM at four sites in the Washington city area.


Laugh and Learn is a true collaborative effort involving 10 community agencies, each of which provide their own unique educational perspective. Participating agencies submit learning objectives and pre-post test questions to allow assessment of cognitive outcomes.


Laugh and Learn provides education on ten topics to approximately 350 young people
through its six week, 5 day a week program.


This summer we had 202 kids at four playground sites: 7th Ward, 8th Ward, Brownson House and Lincoln Heights. 

Next summer program should begin June 18th and end July 27th for 2012
