Support Summer RISE 

summer rise logoSummer RISE helps to inform student decision-making about life after high school. Students participate in a three-week, career-based summer learning opportunity for rising Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) juniors and seniors. Host Organizations give students an overview of their industry or profession, and the careers present at the Host Organization.  

Through the Summer RISE program, students receive:

  • Guidance on the requirements needed (educational and skill-based) to pursue a vocation or profession, and the daily operational experiences a career entails;
  • training on skills such as communication, team building, professionalism, financial literacy and business dining etiquette;
  • connections/networking/mentoring opportunities with possible future employers in desired industries;
  • professional materials for the program such as padfolios, pens, and an opportunity for professional clothing through Montgomery County-based nonprofit: A Wider Circle.

Summer RISE is an initiative led by the Montgomery County Public Schools Partnerships Unit in collaboration with local businesses, government agencies, and non-profit organizations. Student registration is free. Student participants are selected on a first come, first serve basis based on available host industries by geography, representation from all high schools, and the number of available slots. At the conclusion of the three-week, 60-hour program, students are provided with a $300 stipend to cover incidental expenses such as clothing, food, office supplies and transportation.

This program aspires to support up to 500 students. The exact number of participants depends on approved funding. Since 2017, a total of 715 students have participated in the program. More information about this program can be found at www.MCPS-SummerRISE.org.
