How to Choose and Apply to Summer Programs

Hosted by Stephanie, Managing Director of Mentoring

Having three months off of school affords the perfect opportunity for students to explore interests they may not have the chance to learn about in school. Some students take advantage of this time to get a summer job to save money for college, while others seek research or internship opportunities. In this 30-minute workshop, we will review the importance of summer opportunities, how to tell which ones are worth your time, and best practices for applying.
