The program will meet in person from 10 am - 4 pm, where students will engage with Fearless! educators and their peers through deep conversations, team building, and hands-on activities.

Enrollment is free and open to all Orange and Sullivan County high school students.

Participants will receive 30 hours of community service and a letter of recommendation for college and/or employment.
