What began as a 232-student program in 2010 now includes more than 1,600 students spread across 40 locations that include college campuses, community centers, museums, and nature centers. The Boston Opportunity Agenda, a public-private partnership coordinated by the city and school district to fund educational programming, and the Wallace Foundation, a New York-based nonprofit, have poured more than $2 million in new funding into the program, which provides summer courses to students in sixth, seventh, and eighth grades.
