Summer R.I.S.E. (Real Interesting Summer Experience) is a unique opportunity for Montgomery County youth to explore potential careers and for our local businesses to participate in developing a talent pipeline. The initiative is led by WorkSource Montgomery, Inc. (WSM), Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) and supported by county and state government partners, local businesses and non-profit organizations. Local businesses and governmental organizations volunteer to bring rising high school juniors and seniors into their workplaces to provide hands‐on, real world career experiences.
