Summer months can play a crucial role in working to further develop the skills and experiences that help students build on academic year learning, as well as continuing to encourage students to develop college and career plans. Make A Play Inc in partnership with the Albany City School District, the City of Albany of Department of Youth and Workforce Services, Urban Arts Experience, Siena College S.H.A.K.E, and 4th Family will work to deliver an intensive five week experience for youth. The Academy will take place this summer. Dates to be announced.
The Academy is designed to keep students and families engaged and committed to the roadmap for secondary education success: helping students stay connected to academic areas of interest, providing service and experiential learning opportunities, honing skill areas that have been a challenge, encouragement and character building, and bridging the gap between independence, community, careers, secondary and higher education.
