SHS PTA Calls on Community to Offer Engaging Summer Opportunities for Teens

yoga2Calling all local community organizations, parents and educators! Please join the effort to engage our high school students with interesting ways to spend their summer days! 

With many traditional summer programming, jobs and internships canceled due to COVID-19, many of our high school students are now asking, “What will I do for the next two months?” In an effort to help our teens answer this question, the Scarsdale High School PTA is turning to the local community for help and is launching a database to connect students with a mix of in person and remote opportunities.

All local organizations and businesses, parents, teachers, and fellow students are invited to submit opportunities which will engage high schoolers in a variety of experiences this summer.

Are you an instructor of yoga, art, computer coding or sports and willing to offer a summer workshop?

Do you have a business and could you engage a savvy teen to help you remotely?

Are you aware of summer volunteering or internship opportunities which call for hard working and creative high school students?

Have you discovered an interesting online enrichment program geared to high school students?

To submit ideas, please visit the Scarsdale High School PTA Wellness homepage and click on the student opportunities provider form:

The database will launch Monday, June 22nd on the high school PTA wellness home page and will be updated regularly with new submissions throughout the summer.

There are many wonderful resources available in our community. Despite the challenging times, the SHS PTA hopes that this database will connect interested teenagers with interesting opportunities for the summer.
