Summer RISE is an initiative led by the Montgomery County Public Schools’ (MCPS) Department of Partnerships in collaboration with businesses, government agencies, higher education institutions, and nonprofit organizations. The program is for rising MCPS juniors and seniors to participate in a career-based learning opportunity during the summer. Students will have the opportunity to engage in hands-on learning opportunities related to their field of interest.
The program will run for 5 weeks, from June 24th through July 26th, with a minimum of 50 hours of either in-person, virtual or a combination of the two experiences.
Summer RISE is committed to providing real-life career-based educational and professional experiences to ambitious and talented MCPS students.
We invite you to become a Summer RISE Host to support high school students learning about careers as you develop a talent pipeline. You can benefit from student energy, enthusiasm, creativity and innovative ideas.
We invite MCPS rising juniors and seniors to register to participate in Summer RISE, a 50 hour/5-week career-based learning opportunity from June 24 to July 26, 2024, in-person, virtual or a combination of the two experiences.
