LA GEAR UP Summer Camp
Delgado Community College will host a unique experience for rising 9th and 10th graders who attend LA GEAR UP High Schools. Through the LA GEAR UP Summer Camp, students will be introduced to a creative model for experimental learning built on Imagine-Illuminate-Innovate (I3). The camp will offer academic enrichment and reinforcements, peer-lead experiences, mentoring, and networking opportunities to participating students through specific aims:
- Specific Aim 1 - Academic Enrichment: Focused, grade-level appropriate instruction in math and science with reinforcement components with the goal of building confidence and further interest in STEM and business and technology-related fields.
- Specific Aim 2 - College Readiness: ACT preparatory courses with pre and post-test analysis will be offered. An additional emphasis on the college admissions process, financial literacy, and the financial aid process will be infused into the summer experience.
- Specific Aim 3 - Career Exploration: Daily career exploration workshops with a spotlight on a different emerging industry with a significant impact on the local economy. Workshops will either include an industry-relative guest speaker or a guided hands-on activity with a local industry expert.
There is no cost to attend the camp. Twenty-five (25) students will be selected to participate.
