Students participate in a career-based learning opportunity during the summer and will have the opportunity to engage in hands-on learning opportunities related to their field of interest.

Summer RISE is 5 week program

The program runs for 5 weeks with a minimum of 50 hours of either in-person, virtual or a combination of both.

Employers serve as hosts each year
