High school students got the opportunity to participate in an enrichment program during a youth camp hosted by a local community college. Gadsden State’s Valley Street Campus held its annual Empowerment Camp for rising 6th through 11th graders that focused on promoting personal growth and high school readiness.
Students also discussed topics regarding college enrollment, career choices, financial literacy, and more. Fifteen students participated in this year’s camp, and many are happy they did.
Gadsden State’s Retention Advisor believes that if the students have good information, they can make good decisions.
After completing the two-day camp, every student received a personalized Success Tool Kit, a padfolio, and a template that can be used to build their resumes as they progress through high school.
