Summer R.I.S.E. Program Provides Career Experience to High School Students

March 29, 2017

Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett joined representatives from WorkSource Montgomery, Inc. and Montgomery County Public Schools to announce the Summer R.I.S.E (Really Interesting Summer Experience) program yesterday.

   This new initiative provides MCPS rising juniors and seniors with enriching summer career development experiences through local Montgomery County businesses and nonprofit organizations.

   Through Summer R.I.S.E., students will participate in a three-week career exploration that will introduce them to the structures of businesses, technical skills for a wide range of industries, the role of technology, and the importance of customer service in every profession.

   Students will complete a career-readiness curriculum and learn about financial literacy through online and in-person professional training to help prepare them for college and beyond. A $300 stipend will be awarded to students who successfully complete the program. The County Government, MCPS, WorkSource Montgomery and many employers in Montgomery County including United Technologies and Kaiser Permanente have already made strong commitments to enhancing this fantastic opportunity.

   The Summer R.I.S.E. Program is under the direction of William Jawando. “We hope you are as excited as we are about a program that is going to help our community and our students. We invite you sign up to as a career experience host by visiting our website at summer-rise.com, as we work together to invest in Montgomery County’s best resource — its future talent,” said Jawando in a video introducing the program.

   WorkSource Montgomery, Inc. was established July 1, 2016, as an independent public/private nonprofit organization to promote career training and placement for County workers and meet the workforce needs of local employers. For more information please click here WorkSource Montgomery Inc.
