Our 9th Grade RISE program (Realizing Interests through Support and Exploration) is open to all 9th graders who have participated in the Camp Harbor View summer session. Our goal is to help program participants as they begin high school by offering mentoring, skill-based workshops, and exploration of college and career options. By offering a multi-faceted program, we aim to fill a critical gap as 9th graders confront new challenges in their first year of high school.
This program is designed to be broad, offering an array of experiences that expose participants to new skills, learning opportunities, and options for their future, while emphasizing a strong sense of community and the full support of Camp Harbor View.
**In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, elements of Leadership Academy programs will shift for Fall 2020. The health and safety of participants and staff remain our top priority. We are exploring in-person, virtual, and hybrid opportunities for the RISE program at this time and will share more details with teens and families as plans become more clear in the coming weeks.**
