If your high schooler is moping around already and grumbling about nothing to do this summer, you might as well help them prepare for college.

Below is a list of summer programs primarily for students of color. As with any other useful resource, please pass this information on to someone who may be able to take advantage of it.

P.S. I received this list via Adrian at Black Women in Europe. Thanks Adrian, I'm sure some kids in America will be able to make good use of this list of resources.

    Summer school is better than that rotten day camp I went to years ago.

  4. DP June 2, 2008 at 10:41 PM  

    MrsG - Keep 'em busy and out of trouble. If they're learning in the process, that's just so much the better.

    Regina - I'm gonna try and post more stuff like this a little more often. We see enough of the negative as it is. And have you made it to Texas yet? lol

    Texas Liberal - That's saying something to choose summer school over camp. I think I need to hear more about that camp so I can keep my daughter away from it!
