Winona State University will host the H.O.P.E. Academic and Leadership Academy June 22-29.
This one-week summer residential program for male and female high school students will provide participants with an opportunity to experience authentic campus living by taking courses taught by faculty, living on campus and making real decisions.
The academy offers leadership training, and communication and interpersonal skill building activities that will help students, as well as their families, move beyond the financial, social and academic barriers toward the realization of an engaged and successful undergraduate student college experience. Participants will go through first aid training and certification.
Housing, supplies and meals will be provided.
Applications will become available April 1 and are due on June 5.
This event is sponsored by the WSU Inclusion & Diversity Office, Southeast Technical College, Anoka-Ramsey Community College and Robbinsdale Area Schools.
