Alert: Summer Program Deadlines
It may seem very early to plan your summer activities, especially considering the uncertainties of Covid-19, but many programs anticipate opening this summer perhaps, with some modifications. Students should check back for updates on the status of programs while also being aware that some popular summer programs have very early deadlines and interviews for coveted positions begin as early as January. Here are some ideas to consider:
- apply for A Summer Job. How to collaborate with others and manage money and save. Many local summer camps begin the hiring process in January, so it isn’t too early to enquire now. Some of our clients in Greater Boston enjoy working at Summer@Park and Beaver Summer Programs.
- Pursue Science Research. Highly competitive programs such as the Research Science Institute (RSI) at MIT and The Boston University Rise Program offer independent science or faculty-mentored research internships for high school students. Deadlines are approaching.
- Gain Experience With an Internship. Many of our clients have created their own science research or internship opportunities in places such as medical research labs, social media companies, and corporate marketing departments by networking with neighbors, relatives, and friends’ parents. Draft a resume and then start networking! Other great resources include The Student Leaders Program at Bank of America, or contact InternWorks or The Internship Connection for assistance in landing an internship. (Please note that some internship opportunities may be remote due to Covid-19 restrictions.)
- Learn About Health and Medicine. Boston University offers Introduction to Medicine for high school students, and the application will be available starting on December 15th.
- The highly regarded and selective Telluride Association Summer Program is back. This year’s offerings are Black Studies and Anti-Oppressive Studies.
- After a hiatus, the six-week Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Agress Summer Health Corps program is being offered again.
- The Massachusetts State House Tour Guide program gives teens the opportunity to meet people visiting Boston from all over the world.
