NAF at Berkeley
ABOUT NAF AT BERKELEY
NAF Future Ready Scholars @ UC Berkeley engages high school students who have demonstrated an interest in science and math. During the 3-week summer component, NAF Future Ready Scholars @ UC Berkeley provides accelerated classes rooted in solving real-world problems and exposure to STEM fields; the academic rigor is alloyed with a strong community experience.
Scholars are also provided with College Success programming. This component ensures students are intentionally supported with their college and career exploration, preparation, and goals. The “College Success Workshops” are led by CEP staff. During these workshops, scholars take career inventories and use these inventories to explore occupations and career clusters. Students are also provided information on A-G requirements, college planning by grade level, and an overview of post-secondary options.
Community building is a central aspect of our program. During the summer students participated in intentional weekly workshops, community meeting spaces, and daily morning ice breakers, that provided a space for scholars to build deep, meaningful relationships with each other and our staff. Our goal is to provide our holistic programming so that our scholars build a strong support network that will champion them for years to come.
Throughout the academic school year, NAF Future Ready Scholars @ UC Berkeley will work closely in a virtual setting with our College Adviser, Elizabeth Potts to create college success plans, engage in monthly workshops, and 1:1 advising appointments.
