Our top priority is always the safety and well-being of our students. Given the COVID-19 pandemic, we can no longer hold our in-person residential program for 2020 as originally planned. Instead, the Prove it! team will be offering a free online program this summer. Apply to our program for more details. We are still accepting applications until all spots are filled, so we encourage interested students to apply.
