Students in Montgomery County will have the opportunity to test the waters in a variety of career fields this summer.
The program is called Summer R.I.S.E., which stands for Really Interesting Summer Experience. It was launched at Kaiser Permanente Tuesday in Rockville.
Rising juniors and seniors can participate in a three week career exploration program, introducing them to business structure, technical skills, applicable technology and customer service techniques. A $300 stipend will be awarded to every participant.
“If we don’t give kids an opportunity early-on to be exposed to jobs, opportunities and more adults that can mentor, the less likely they are to have meaningful, fulfilling work,” said Kim Horn, President of Kaiser Permanente Mid-Atlantic.
