During the final Starr Hill Pathways (SHP) programming day of the year, Scholars learned about nursing responsibilities with UVA Nursing, took a tour of Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital, analyzed a game of ping pong basketball with Computers4Kids (C4K), and painted original artwork with The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative.

The SHP curriculum is designed to help Scholars elevate every year - from the time they enter the program as rising sixth graders to the time they matriculate out of the program as high school graduates. This year, the rising ninth graders in SHP's inaugural cohort will be paired with internships through our community partners at the Community Attention Youth Internship Program, a professional development opportunity for youth ages 14 to 21.
