Memphis Public Libraries’ 2020 Summer Camps will provide 250 tweens and teens with the optimal summer experience during several STEAM camps, covering Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.
Several partnering agencies joined forces with Memphis Public Libraries and state-of-the-art teen lab CLOUD901 to make the camps possible, such as the Memphis Library Foundation, AutoZone, Memphis Music Initiative, First Robotics, West Tennessee STEM Hub, and the Society for Information Management (SIM).
Together, these organizations developed the following interactive summer camps for Memphis youth.
Lunch and snacks will be provided at each camp, and all campers will receive a free T-shirt and drawstring backpack.
The application period begins April 4, and the deadline to submit applications is May 7, 2020. (A link to the online application will be available on the Library’s website soon.) For more information, call (901) 415-2760.
SUMMER LAW INTERN PROGRAM
For over 10 years, the Memphis Bar Association has sponsored the Summer Law Intern Program, which seeks to develop and nurture an interest in the legal profession among young people from underrepresented groups. Students accepted into the program are placed in law firms, corporate legal departments, or government agencies and are required to work a total of 60 hours during the four-week period in the summer. Upon successful completion of the internship, they will receive $500 stipend during a graduation ceremony to be held in early July.
