Horizon ABQ Sponsorship

Horizons Albuquerque is a 100% donor-funded program that advances equitable learning opportunities for students. Our program is tuition-free and offers a six-week summer program and year-round out-of-school-time support for students and families. The growing inequities in academic and enrichment opportunities, social/emotional support and health services increases the achievement gap for our scholars and their families. By creating a positive, safe, and affirming learning environment and expanding social and emotional learning opportunities using evidence-based approaches, we can minimize the long-term effects of inequities.

Horizons Albuquerque has over 40 community partners, including three independent schools that host our summer program on their campuses. Coming from over 60 public schools, 100% of our students are eligible for free meals. Our annual operating budget is $470,000, which reflects a yearly cost of $2,500 per scholar. The majority of our budget is used for our six-week summer program when we hire 30 certified teachers, educational assistants, and bus drivers. 

Over the last decade, we have provided summer academic and enrichment programs and supportive year-round wrap-around services as a network program of Horizons National, which has worked for over 25 years to advance educational equity to underserved students, families, and communities.  Please join us by investing in our future.
