the third summer in a row, the Summer Enrichment at Dartmouth Program
included UVPEB as an intergral component of its curriculum. Designed
to expand the educational opportunities for promising high school
students from selected under-resourced urban and rural high schools,
SEAD brought two cohorts to the Dartmouth campus this summer, and
each goup spent an afternoon touring Upper Valley workplaces of interest
its students from such widely ranging locales as Oakland, CA, Claremont,
NH and the Bronx, SEAD intentionally designs its programs to expand
conceptions of what is possible in their lives. By partnering with
focues its students' thinking about the variety of jobs open to them,
requisite skills and educational levels required to secure these jobs.
Students visited Clear Channel, Pike Industries, DHMC, the Co-op Food
Tele Atlas, CRELL, the CCBA and the Hanover Police and Fire departments.
evaluations attest to just how eye-opening an experience it was: whether
