8th Grade Update: Summer Opportunities Workshop!

HUGE shoutout to Karina, Marcel, and Sha’Kuana for organizing an awesome Summer Opportunities Workshop for our 8th grade students! Volunteers and college advisors helped students identify types of activities they’d be interested in and then worked with them to find specific camps that worked for the students and their families. THEN volunteers and advisors helped students apply to the Youth Opportunity Scholarship to receive up to $500 in funding for their chosen summer program.

Our students had a range of interests that included acting, cooking, robotics, soccer, and drawing. Let’s see what summer has in store for them!

Thank you again to the folks who made this happen!
