The following highlight the best of what UC Davis has to offer and are just a few of the many examples of custom youth programs that we can create for you.

English and Culture Programs for International Students

Students improve their English conversational skills and sharpen their listening skills while they learn about American culture. They build their confidence as English speakers and have the opportunity to experience California culture.

College Preparation and Study Skills Program

Students learn to bridge the gap between high school and university life. This program features interactive discussions with admission representatives, and visits to universities such as UC Davis, UC Berkeley, Stanford and California State University, Sacramento. Participants attend workshops in preparing college applications, university survival techniques and time management skills. Students meet members of the university community to learn skills for social and academic success.

Science and STEM Programs

Known for its state-of-the-art research facilities, laboratories and progressive spirit, UC Davis embraces a philosophy of learning and discovery. Our science/STEM programs help young students improve their research, oral presentation and interviewing skills through hands-on learning. Students also visit a variety of science-related sites based on their specialized interests.

Team Building and Leadership Program

This program for young leaders provides a unique experience for youth to expand their own individual strengths and interests with lectures and activities designed specifically to improve leadership qualities in a globalized world.
