Summer educational programs for youth offered at Birmingham-Southern

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Youth programs in leadership and service and college life experiences will be offered this summer at Birmingham-Southern College.

The 10th annual Student Leaders in Service program will expose high school students to leadership theories and provide opportunities to practice leadership through community service projects. The weeklong residential program for students who will be high school juniors or seniors in the 2003-04 school year is sponsored by the Hess Center for Leadership and Service and the Office of Admission and facilitated by BSC faculty members.

For the second year, a Student Leaders in Service program will be offered specifically for young women. “Leadership from a Female Perspective” will be held June 28-July 2 and will focus on issues that deal directly with women. A coed Student Leaders in Service session for both young men and young women called “Expanding Knowledge, Exploring Concepts, Experiencing Life” will be held June 8-13.

For more information on Student Leaders in Service, contact the BSC Office of Admission at 205/226-4696.

Another summer program at BSC, the Summer Scholar Program, will introduce rising high school seniors to college life at Birmingham-Southern, while awarding them college credit for coursework completed.

This year's Summer Scholar Program is scheduled for June 8-July 25. Summer Scholars are enrolled in two courses taught by full-time faculty. Courses are taught in the areas of mathematics, science, humanities, social sciences, art, philosophy, and religion. Credit awarded for completion of coursework can be applied toward future work at BSC or transferred to other institutions for credit toward a baccalaureate degree.

Students in the Summer Scholar Program also will experience non-coursework college activities. Additionally, at the end of the program, three Summer Scholars will be awarded scholarships worth as much as $16,000 over four years to attend Birmingham-Southern.
