Summer program to assist K-12 students

Courtney Packer

MCC is helping the community by allowing students try out different careers. Running June 1 through July 30, grade K-12 students are invited to participate in MCC’s Summer Youth Workshop, which offers them the chance to get hands-on experience in a particular field.

There will be 21 different classes offered, ranging from theater workshops to computer camps.

Registration began on April 1 and they will continue to accept students up until June 1.

“The program is in its first year so they are still trying to get the word out. So far 20 people have signed up,” said Steven Miranda, who is in charge of registration for the program.

Attendees will participate in different classes and will be able to explore an area of interest. Some departments that are participating are the music department, fashion department, business department and theater department.

“I wish they had this when I was figuring out what I wanted to be, and then maybe I wouldn’t have had to switch my major,” MCC student Alisha Heitkotter said when asked if she would have taken advantage of this opportunity had it been available before she started college.

This program will help children get a jump start on deciding what they want to do when they grow up.

The community education department can be contacted at (480) 461-7493 for more information.
