The Learning Gap

The Learning Gap is the difference between the academic progress that a student has made and the expected academic level that a student should have achieved by a certain age/grade. Similar to the Opportunity Gap, which refers to the ways in which race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and other factors contribute to academic limitations, the Learning Gap shows that, if left unaddressed, it will compound over time and become more severe and pronounced, which can increase the chances that a student will struggle academically and socially or drop out of school.

About Us

Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay has been a strong thread in the fabric of the Tampa Bay community for more than 90 years. In 1926, the Tampa Rotary Club established the first Club, – the West Tampa Boys Club. After successfully financing and operating the Club for almost 20 years, the Rotarians recognized a need for expansion and thus began the growth of an organization dedicated to serving young men and women.
