BASIC SWIM LESSON (at YMCA)

We noticed a lack of swimming experience with some of our students. While swimming skills are unnecessary for YRP, they may help provide comfort during our Catalina Island trip. If you would like to enroll in free swim lessons please see the YMCA at Expo Park.

MENTORING

Each student is paired with their own mentor for the summer to complete a research project. Research is presented at the end of the summer as a poster session in a public symposium (open to friends and family!).

WEEKLY SEMINARS

Every week a speaker discusses various college application steps and life tips.

CATALINA WEEKEND AT WRIGLEY INSTITUTE
