Christmas came early for Cambridge’s City Sprouts and East End House after-school programs. Both groups recently received five-figure “quality enhancement” grants from the Commonwealth’s Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. The money is intended to fund an expanded menu of STEM-focused service-learning summer programs and to expand the amount of time our kids spend learning outside the classroom.

Congratulations to everyone at City Sprouts, East End House, and their partners at the Cambridge Public School District—you continue to make us proud every single day.
