The Center for Community and Learning Partnerships (CLP) hosted the annual RAMP Final Presentation Showcase on Aug. 18 in Watson Auditorium.

Students discussed the work they conducted this summer, offering background on several locales within the Boston area, and presenting suggestions for improvement at these locations

Projects included:

  • St. Stephen's After School Program
  • Mission Hill Neighborhood Housing Services
  • YMCA Dorchester
  • Boston Children's Museum

RAMP, created and managed by the Center for Community and Learning Partnerships, is geared specifically to inner-city Boston residents and allows a group of incoming first-year students to engage in summer education programs before entering Wentworth as full-time undergraduates. The program strives to support the transition from high school to college by connecting students with peers and faculty, giving them a taste of the work they will do at Wentworth, and providing them with learning opportunities that they might not have had at their high school.
