June 27-July 20th. Volunteers needed for Future Leaders Program at Bowie State University. Homeland Security and Emergency Management

Capstone Objective: 

The Prince George’s County Youth Career Connect Program (PGC-YCCP) Homeland Security Capstone Challenge 2017, is designed to teach students how to respond to emergency situations that may occur in their own communities or schools.  The PGC-YCCP is for students attending Prince Georges County Public Schools Career Academies at Bladensburg (Biomedical Sciences), Fairmont Heights (Information Technology), Parkdale (Homeland Security) and Potomac (Homeland Security and Information Technology) High Schools. Students will work in teams to gain knowledge on emergency preparedness and response. Students will use knowledge gained from sessions to develop their own emergency plan for their community or school utilizing an emergency scenario provided during the program. 

During the Capstone Challenge finale, each team will present their solution to a panel of expert judges who will choose the winning team. The PGC-YCCP Homeland Capstone Challenge will run for four weeks beginning June 26, 2017- July 20, 2017 Mondays through Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on the campus of Bowie State University.

We are seeking subject matter experts (SMEs) in emergency preparedness and response to teach basic knowledge on how to respond to an emergency until help arrives. Students will need to learn basic community emergency response protocol and procedures to successfully complete capstone challenge.
