Youth initiatives looking to occupy students’ summer breaks with learning exploration are back in session. One of which is Coahoma Community College’s Educational Talent Search Program. Students grade 8th-12th are assembling for a Summer Enrichment Program slated to run until June 26. ETS staff focuses on a different grade level of approximately 25 participants each week.
Having returned to an in-person structure, guidelines, including social distancing, are observed during its workshops involving STEM activities to ensure a safe environment conducive to productivity. Moreover, this summer will be the first time participants receive a one-time $60 stipend for attending and participating in the program. Participants will be treated to an informative, fun-filled STEM Camp set for June 28-30, 2021, and a Video and Music Camp July 7-9.
ETS, a federally funded pre-college program in line with the Higher Education Act, upholds a mission to contribute to the student’s development and expand the student’s academic potential. It aims to prepare the students mainly from area secondary schools for admission into post-secondary institutions by providing basic information on higher education options. Cohorts are connected to services including, but not limited to, mentoring, ACT Prep, study and test-taking skills, college and university tours, and summer enrichment.
