Breakfast and Lunch will be provided. Learn about financial aid, job opportunities, scholarships, and technical schools. Breakout sessions about substance abuse, relationships, and life skills.

Monday, June 17th, will be for boys only. Tuesday, June 18th, will be girls only and Wednesday, June 19th is for everyone and will feature the BLAST Program from the US Attorneys Office.

The BLAST Program offers students an opportunity to meet representatives of the criminal justice community and ask them questions, share their perceptions of law enforcement, and interact with law enforcement officers in a familiar setting. Law enforcement officers also provide students with their perspective on responding to dangerous or uncertain circumstances and the importance of remaining calm and following the officers’ directions in these situations.
