Watkins Mill High School
Youth Summit Project
Lead Partner Organization: Latin American Youth Center
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.
