  • Experience America - Summer Opportunities

     
    A core focus of our programs is to give our students a candid look into these industries before they take the next steps in their education.

    We developed our Summer Programs with the University of Washington (UW) in Seattle, as well as The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) in Los Angeles.
    • Entrepreneurship (UW): Helps students learn how to start a successful business with University of Washington’s Foster School of Business and visits with local businesses (Amazon, Boeing, Starbucks).
    • Game Experience (UW): Introduces students to game development, teaching them elements of design, animation, and private tours of the world's leading game studios in Seattle.
    • Fashion (FIDM): This program is for students who want to dive into LA's fashion and design industry, learning how to take designs from concept to consumer.
    • Experience Japan (Nagoya & Tokyo): This immersion trip is for students who have a passion for Japanese language and culture. It gives students the opportunity to explore Japan as a tourist, student, and professional.

    Journalism Workshop

    The New England Center for Investigative Reporting, based at Boston University's College of Communication, is again offering a unique Investigative Journalism Workshop this summer. This program, now in its eighth year, would be a perfect fit for your students who are interested in journalism or writing. Nearly 135 students from 26 states and 15 countries attended last summer's workshop, and we are expecting sessions to fill up quickly for 2016.

    Our three two-week workshops will begin on June 27. During each session, students participate in seminars and work alongside BU faculty and award-winning local and national journalists on investigative stories that could be published on the center's website or in regional and national publications. Students will live on the BU campus and gain hands-on experience in investigative reporting while developing critical thinking and writing skills.

    For more information about our program, visit our website and read students' reflections on their experiences at the workshop last summer. I encourage you to share this information with your students and their families.

    We recommend that students who require financial aid apply early, as aid is offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Big Thompson Interact Club

    Big Thompson Interact Club is the Rotary International’s non-profit service club for young people in the Loveland area.  We have a ton of fun doing good deeds for others while earning community service hours that will help the students when it comes time to apply for scholarships and college! 

    Big Thompson Interact is a self-governing group sponsored by the three Rotary clubs in Loveland which provide support and guidance.   Any youth (ages 12-18) are welcome to participate.   There are no dues and no mandatory attendance regulations.  We simply ask that members be willing to participate in as many service projects as they are able to.  We recognize that many youth are extremely busy, so we try to minimize extra meetings. We welcome any new ideas to create opportunities that allow us to assist others in need.

    Big Thompson Interact averages one major project each month!  Through these efforts, Interact members have developed a network of friendships and have learned the importance of:

     

    • Developing leadership skills and personal integrity
    • Demonstrating helpfulness and respect for others
    • Understanding the value of individual responsibility and hard work
    • Advancing international understanding and goodwill

     

    If you, or anyone you know would benefit from earning community service hours, and would like to meet new friends, please join us.  You can find us at Big Thompson Interact on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/243663615050/).  Feel free to call me at any time if you have questions.

    Kind regards,

    Teresa Beemer, Adult Sponsor - Big Thompson Interact Club
