 Project Description:

The “Youth Summit Project” prepared 90 incoming 9th grade students to enter Watkins Mill High School (WMHS). The cross section of students from two feeder middle schools participated in a summer “bridge” program to create a peer support network; familiarize students with policies and student supports at WMHS;  teach key skills for success; and engage and educate parents about how to help their teenager. The yearlong follow-on program reinforced the building of relationships and development of skills.
