Summer Project Openings

I have a number of friends, and a son, leading summer projects.

At this time of year, I often wonder which projects are still accepting applicants. Maybe you do too.

With current programming, if a project is not listed on the public website gosummerproject.com, that means it is full for both men and women. If it is listed, there is no way of knowing if it is open to women as well as men. (Spaces for women generally fill up quicker than men.)

So Martha Langrill on the Summer Projects team has made it easy to find out. She created a public Google spreadsheet with the lists for openings for men and women. Anyone with this link can view it.

Still, there are a lot of great projects with availability. Go to gosummerproject.com for complete project descriptions and dates. And for questions about a specific project, click on the director’s name and send an email.

Finally, you may recall seeing my piece about Mission Summer in the March edition of QuickRead. If you have students who wish they could attend a project, but just can’t because of school, family or financial obligations, do encourage them to check out the info on Mission Summer at http://gosummerproject.com/projects/846
