This summer, the Heartland Family Service Ruth K. Solomon Girls Program is proud to offer our new Summer Enrichment Academy!

The Summer Enrichment Academy has a focus on education, arts, and leadership, while providing an environment that empowers our young ladies to be their very best.

Hosted by Trinity Lutheran Church located at 6340 N 30th St, there is plenty of room for activity, exploration, and adventure! Our new Program Director Ché Thompson-Orduña is excited to get to know each of the young ladies and their wonderful families.

The Ruth K. Solomon Girls Summer Enrichment Academy is open to girls 5-18 years old.  Our emphasis for summer 2017 will be on maintaining and improving academic success, implementing leadership and community art projects while helping our girls build positive social skills. The girls will  work with accomplished professional artists, creative writers, and community leaders from the Omaha area, and will showcase their abilities in a major arts and leadership showcase at the end of the summer. Most important, the Solomon Girls Summer Enrichment Academy offers a small group experience for girls, providing close supervision by caring staff and teachers. For effective programs and events, the girls are divided into the following age groups: 5-7 yrs, 8-10 yrs, 11-12 years, and teens.
