The City of San Mateo Parks and Recreation Department is offering a unique Leaders In Training program where students will work alongside a veteran staff member and learn what it takes to be an extraordinary leader. They will help plan and lead activities within our Summer Kids Club program as well as participate in team building exercises with their peers. This program aims to enhance leadership skills, greater their personal development, build resumes or college applications and make memories that will last a lifetime. After the completion of a two-week session, students will earn over 50 hours of volunteer service and are welcome to register for multiple sessions. An application and interview are required before the programs begins on June 27th. Students can register in person at their local Community Center or online at cityofsanmateo.org/summercamps. Please pass this onto anyone you believe will benefit from this opportunity.

Greetings from Swarthmore College!
Discover Swarthmore affords students the opportunity to visit one of the best liberal arts colleges in the country, all expenses paid (including flight/ground transportation, lodging, meals). The program will provide participants with a taste of the college experience, including the opportunity to meet other talented students, learn from faculty members, eat in our dining hall, and spend a few nights in our residence halls with student hosts.
We are holding the two DS programs on the following dates:
Thursday, September 15 – Saturday, September 17, 2016
Thursday, October 20 – Saturday, October 22, 2016
Nomination and Selection Criteria
Discover Swarthmore is open to all rising high school seniors (U.S. citizens, Permanent Resident, and undocumented/DACA students living in the United States), but the selection committee will prioritize applications from students with the following characteristics:
- Traditionally underrepresented groups (African-American, Hispanic/Latino/a, Native American, Asian-American, and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander)
- First generation in their family to attend college
- Low-income students, and students who might not otherwise be able to afford a trip to campus
- Rural students
- Undocumented and DACA-eligible students
We accept nominations from high school counselors, mentors, CBO advisors, teachers, and any person who may work with a high-achieving student.
Swarthmore College Highlights
If you’re not familiar with Swarthmore College, here are a few highlights:
- Swarthmore is consistently ranked among the top 3 liberal arts colleges in the country.
- Located just outside Philadelphia, Swarthmore is only a 25-minute train ride from downtown.
- Small class sizes enable faculty to provide the support students need. We have 1,500 students, and nearly 40% of our classes have fewer than ten students.
- Swarthmore provides need-based financial aid that meets 100% of demonstrated need with loan-free financial aid awards. The average aid award for 2015-2016 was $47,564.
