Plan Your Summer

Description:

Students learn how to find rewarding summer activities, jobs, internships, and community service experiences that are looked upon favorably by colleges. Summer activities that help strengthen a student's application will be different for each student. For one student, an 8-week community service trip in a rural area will be an important life-transforming event. For another student, working at a local business will demonstrate a strong work ethic. Students learn how to apply to various programs, as well as create a week-by-week plan for the summer to utilize this important time.
