Last week, the Hopkins Pathfinder team distributed 123 boxes filled with books and school supplies to students participating in this summer's virtual program. Each box contained materials such as notebooks, pencils and pens, protractors, art supplies, science lab kits, jump ropes and tech equipment. Errol Saunders, the program's executive director, said this summer's program will combine hands-on offline activities and engaging online classes. Established in 1992, Pathfinder (founded as Summerbridge New Haven) is a tuition-free after-school and summer educational enrichment program for New Haven-area middle school students. The Summer Program also serves as an intensive, in-service teacher training workshop for talented high school and college students.
