Students accepted into this program will spend 2 Saturdays a month over next semester meeting with bilingual health care professionals; engaging with Duke University Medical Scholars, and participating in STEM demonstrations. Applications are due December 5. Please see the High School Resource Wall or Ms. Settle’s website for the link to the application.
Jr. YMA will be hosting a clothing drive. This is the season for giving, so in that spirit, if you can spare any new or gently used items to help keep someone less fortunate warm in these cold days, then please donate. We are asking for items such as coats, jackets, gloves, scarves, etc. Please see Mr. Marshall if you have questions.
