I know how difficult it can be to find meaningful summer opportunities in the era of Covid-19, so I wanted to highlight some interesting virtual opportunities for teens. However, please note that I cannot vet these programs!
The Bronfman Center for Jewish Student Life at NYU is offering an online professional development summer program geared towards high school and college students. Rewired is a compilation of professional, leadership, and identity development seminars adapted for online, independent learning. The program also includes two hours of 1-on-1 coaching with a member of the Bronfman Center team. After completion of the modules, each student will receive an NYU Rewired Certificate. The cost to participate is $180. For more details, visit http://www.bronfmancenter.org/rewired or contact Beckie Hamroff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For students in the NYC area, the Bronfman Center also runs a Summer Excelerator Internship program, which appears to be running in a hybrid format for Summer 2021.
After a brief career as a lawyer and a few years in higher education administration, I have been working as an independent college counselor at Vinik EPS since 2012. Originally from Baltimore, I now live in Rockville, MD with my husband, our three daughters, and our King Charles Cavalier Spaniel.
