Richmond/Innsbrook Campus Steps Up for Mayor’s Youth Academy

Summer Course Offers College Credit and iPads for Students in Need

Richmond, Va. – Sometimes, all young people need is a little bit of hope, some confidence and the knowledge that there are people who care about their future. That’s what the Mayor’s Youth Academy in Richmond is all about and it’s a cause that is very dear to the faculty and staff at the ECPI Richmond/Innsbrook campus.

Since 2007, they have organized enrichment programs to work with inner-city youth. This year, the program has evolved into something quite special. Partnering with the Mayor’s Youth Academy, the campus is providing a five-week program where 25 recent high school graduates gather to participate in enrichment classes, but even more important, they attend an actual college course, CIS 107 – Computer Operating Systems, and receive three hours credit at no cost.
