The program introduces 25 high school students from underrepresented communities in Martinez, California, to careers in the built environment. The program begins during the academic year as professionals visit the high schools to introduce students to various fields, including landscape architecture, planning, engineering, architecture, marketing, and finance. Over the summer, the students spend two weeks at UC Berkeley getting a taste of each career path and focusing with some intensity on the field of their choice. The ultimate program goal is to provide role models to socioeconomically disadvantaged youth and increase the numbers entering UC Berkeley in design professions.
