D3 SUMMER PLANS DRIVE

Jobs, Internships, Peralta…. This summer all Division 3 students will have an enriching experience.

 

Why is it important that all students have enriching summer experiences?

–       Keeps students out of trouble and makes Oakland safer and healthier

–       Develops experience that will help students gain jobs and internships in the future

–       Extracurricular activities are really important for college and scholarship applications

–       Students build a network of professional relationship and contacts that help lead to more opportunities

–       Possibility to earn graduation credit for academic work, internships and work experience

–       Opportunity to earn money to pay for college

–       Helps fight “summer slide” (on average students lose 2.5 months of learning during inactive summers)

–       Full and active summers make happy students; hanging out at home for 2 months makes bored and depressed students

 

Requirement:

–       All 10th, 11th and 12th grade students required to engage in a training, learning, enrichment, or work experience this summer.

–       This could look like taking a Peralta Community College course, attending PCA or other college prep program, participating in an academic enrichment program on a college campus, having a paid job, interning or apprenticing in a field you are interested in, volunteering with a local organization, traveling through a program, training with a sports team, participating in a fellowship, or attending summer school.
