Connecting Students to Careers
MCPS is partnering with WorkSource Montgomery and the Montgomery County government on a new program that will provide rising juniors and seniors with enriching summer career development experiences through local Montgomery County businesses and nonprofit organizations. Through Summer R.I.S.E. (Really Interesting Summer Experience), students will participate in a three-week career exploration that will introduce them to the structures of businesses, technical skills, the role of technology and the importance of customer service. The partnership was unveiled during a March 28 press event.
