College hosts Urban League students for summer

Seattle Central will help underrepresented individuals get a jump on their education and careers this summer by partnering with the Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle to host two pilot programs. Through the six-week “Summer University” program, at-risk high school students in Seattle and King County will take art and science classes throughout the day. The program is designed to introduce students to a range of college degrees and career opportunities, and students will meet with college staff to learn more about studying at Seattle Central.

The “Career Bridge Summer Experience” is a four-week training program designed to help young men of color, ages 18-24, with access to education, employment and economic career pathway opportunities in order to improve their quality of life. Through the program, the men will receive six general education credits through Seattle Central, develop a resume and visit several local businesses that are hiring.
