Summer RISE Home Page → Information for Hosts
We invite you to become a Summer RISE Career Experience Host to support high school student learning as they explore careers they may wish to pursue and to benefit by exposure to their energy, enthusiasm, creativity and innovative ideas.
Summer RISE is committed to providing real-life educational and professional experiences to the ambitious and talented youth of Montgomery County. Your engagement will support our amazing youth by influencing the trajectory of their pathways and impacting their academic and professional development.
MCPS fully supports organizations by providing an orientation session on program expectations and meaningfully engaging youth in the workplace. During the orientation session, hosts will be provided guidance for creating a framework that each employer can adapt to create a unique career-based learning experience for its student(s). An overview of how students are prepared for their experience, as well as tips on how to work with high school youth, will also be provided.
During the summer program, we ask that hosts teach students about the following:
Summer RISE experiences show students what they need to do to be “career-ready.” Constructive feedback from supportive host supervisors bolsters student self-confidence and empowers them to take initiative. Summer RISE provides students with professional adult mentors who invite students into their worksites so that students can learn about professions in our local area.
