The first event Dream Project holds with its juniors, the Spring BBQ happens in May. Juniors from all 16 of the Dream Project’s partner high schools take a field trip down to the University of Washington campus for a day. Students receive a tour of the campus from a Dream Team member and have a chance to visit a class and listen to a real college lecture. For many of our students, this will be the first time they have been on a college campus. It can go a long way to helping students envision themselves as a college student.
How can high school students participate?
Transportation is coordinated through each high school, and permission slips must be signed by parent or guardian to allow students to attend. Once on campus, Dream Project will provide food, tour guides, and information for the event to each student.
