We worked with the San Diego Unified School District’s Advanced Placement Incentive Program department to plan a summer Leadership Camp for high school students in AP programs across the district. In August, approximately 40 high school students participated in a 2 ½ day leadership development camp at UCSD. These students will be leaders and ambassadors at their high schools to encourage greater participation in AP programs and create support networks for students. Generous donations from Ed Abeyta in Extension and Dr. William Norcross in the School of Medicine made it possible for the group to stay on campus in dorms to have a college-like experience.
