学术成就

Student academic success is the foundation of Cincinnati Museum Center's 青年项目. While there are no grade requirements to be accepted into the 项目, it is stated that each participant will be in good academic standing. Students must meet academic requirements to be accepted on many field experiences and to obtain a paid position in the 项目. 通过不断的沟通, 青年项目 staff is kept aware of each student’s academic achievements. While the staff often becomes aware of academic struggles from the student, staff is often made aware from speaking with the student’s parent or guardian. Maintaining positive relationships with the families of our students has allowed us to be a constant force in all areas of their lives.

The most influential resources for academic success we have in 青年项目 are the museums themselves. 学生们在博物馆的各个领域接受深入的培训, therefore supplementing—and often exceeding—the lessons and expectations in their classes. We have the unique opportunity of introducing students to leading professionals in science, 历史与儿童发展. The exposure to these professionals and the constant support of 青年项目 staff clearly provide a setting for each youth’s academic success.

大学做准备

One of the principal goals of 青年项目 is to encourage participants to seek admittance to an institution of higher education. Many of the 项目' participants are first-generation college students. 青年项目 staff work with the youth to support and empower them to attend the college of their choice, 尽管成本, 过往成绩及其他障碍. This dedication to higher education is reinforced through the work of the YouthALIVE! group at Cincinnati Museum Center which offers extra opportunities to develop work skills, 探索职业和大学的选择, 提高学习成绩. Activities are open to all participants but designed to address the unique needs of underserved youth, 包括那些有财务状况的人, 情感和家庭问题.

In addition to the standard requirements of 青年项目, YouthALIVE! 参与者每月参加一次额外的讲习班. 这些工作坊包括大学和奖学金论文写作, 资金管理和预算, 目标设定和文化多样性讨论. 青少年还会参加为期三天的大学校园参观活动, a spring break experience that visits at least four colleges in three days, and a week-long college and career expedition to a regional location during the summer. A student may visit anywhere from eight to ten colleges each year they are in the program. This works out to as many as 32 to 40 大学网上赌搏网站十大排行 before they graduate high school. These trips are offered at no cost to the student and all students are encouraged to attend.
