A Transitional Program
GMS offers a Summer Bridge program for incoming freshmen who would like to be better prepared for their high school experience. Participants earn elective credits, take field trips, learn media and presentation skills, and get the inside scoop on what high school is really like. Students who attend Summer Bridge have higher attendance rates and overall grade point averages in their freshman year. And most importantly, they make new friends!
IYMS is an annual two-week event that brings together young people from different cultures to create media projects aimed at inspiring their own generation to take action and responsibility for the future. By confronting and examining global problems, and exploring solutions together, they are bound in a shared purpose. Working toward a common goal and being accountable for a concrete creative product within a limited time period provides the perfect "stew" for collaboration. During this often arduous process, youth create a model for a peaceful, yet dynamic, cooperative world community. Over the last ten years, more than 600 young delegates and their adult advisers representing 50 countries have participated in the IYMS.
With our Summer Bridge Program, students from Cleveland High School and students from around Los Angeles they work together to create seven public service announcements about different issues. A local version of the International Summit.
