This summer, the Winter Institute will be hosting the third annual Summer Youth Institute June 10-24 at the University of Mississippi. SYI is for Mississippi high school students currently in their freshman and sophomore years. The program emphasizes relationship building, history, diversity, and civic engagement through fun activities, field trips, and workshops. At the end of the program, students go home with a plan for a project to improve their communities and plenty of new friends here at the Institute and across the state. Best of all, SYI is free to students who are accepted into the program.
The Winter Institute is currently accepting applications from students across the state. Based on the applications, they will be interviewing about 50 students to fill 24 available spots. The priority application deadline for SYI is March 1st, though we are extending that through March 15th.
Check out the flyer for the program to the right. You can also learn more about SYI and find the online application at our website, http://youth.winterinstitute.org. If you have any questions about the program, contact Patrick Weems at email@example.com or 662-915-6734.
