I'm a rising sophomore and planning the summers between soph and junior year and between junior and senior year. I'm interested in science, law, activism and research and I wonder if there are any affordable summer programs you've been to that helped you learn a lot :)
Here are some things I am doing this summer (some are programs, some are not) but all are great opportunities:
Community College Classes (Tuition is like $100 a class, and you can get a fee waiver if financial circumstance permits)...
- You can take classes in a variety of areas from Sociology/Psychology to Business Law to Anatomy to Geology to Calculus.
Volunteer for a Political Campaign (FREE):
- this isn't really a summer program, but I've learned a lot. I am phone banking for a senator in a tough primary and I have learned how to be more professional in my attitude and how to talk to those with differing opinions.
Join Political Advocacy Organization:
- 314 Action might be good as it combines science and politics (dedicated to electing scientists to public office)
- Others are swing left, indivisible (if you lean left) or Heritage Foundation (if you lean right).
Look at udemy paid courses they have a bit of everything and have regular sales average less than $20. Buy it on a incognito tab for better deals as it keeps giving discounts if you are first time purschuser and incognito makes the system think you are first time. But sales are regular never pay over $30 for a course
