RU Ready for Work
Summer Enrichment Program (Grades 10-12)
Program starts on July 2, 2018 and ends on August 10, 2018
The RU Ready for Work summer enrichment component features a career immersion experience that exposes students to options in fields such as public and healthcare services, criminal justice, or brain health/psychology research. Students explore pathways to exciting, rewarding and attainable careers via guest speakers, field excursions and interaction with local career professionals. Students intern at local non-profit sites allowing them to refine workplace and professional skills, obtain guidance from a mentor/supervisor, increase social capital and, in many instances, support work that benefits their community. Broadening social/cultural awareness is another hallmark of the summer experience. From participating in global teleconferences with students in Africa, to trips to live performances, Broadway plays and historical museums, students discover how they connect to the world beyond their city’s borders.
