The Richmond Neighborhood Center is excited to offer three summer programs for high school students: Leaders of Color in Training (for rising 10th-12th graders who identify as persons of color), the Freshman Leadership Institute Fellowship (for rising 9th graders), and the Math Empowerment Cohort (for rising 9th graders).

 

Programs

Leaders of Color in Training

Leaders of Color in Training, or LOCIT, is a summer program designed for rising 10th-12th graders who identify as persons of color. Throughout this program, youth will have the opportunity to hear from guest speakers, go on field trips around the Greater Bay Area, and make a difference in their community.

Youth leaders from Multicultural and Identity-Based Clubs such as Gender Sexuality Alliance, Kaibigan Pilipino, Black Student Union, Latin@s Unidos, Vietnamese Student Association, Latinx Club and KApamilya should all attend.

 

Freshman Leadership Institute Fellowship

The Freshman Leadership Institute Fellowship (FLIF) is a free 4-week summer program designed for rising 9th graders planning to attend any high school. The purpose of this program is to give youth entering their first year of high school the opportunity to explore their own leadership and to get a head start on planning for success in high school and beyond.

This program was designed to support students who may need extra support with the transition into high school and/or may be at risk of not graduating high school on time.

Location: Wallenberg High School
Dates: June 8 – July 2, 2020
Times: Monday – Friday, 12PM – 4PM

Math Empowerment Cohort

The Math Empowerment Cohort is a free 4-week summer program designed for rising 9th graders planning to attend any high school who need extra support bringing their math skills up to grade level. This is not math class and this is not summer school. This program is designed to improve mathematical literacy. We will be exploring mathematical thinking in a hands-on environment.

This program is designed for students who are failing their current 8th grade math class or at risk for failing their future 9th grade math class. Space is limited to 20 students.

Location: Wallenberg High School
Dates: June 8 – July 2, 2020
