Summer Participant Snapshots – Amonte Gwaltney
Meet Amonte Gwaltney for this month’s participant spotlight! An 18-year-old from Washington, DC, Amonte recently graduated from Kipp DC College Prep this spring. Directly following graduation, he joined us for our first-ever virtual summer program. We thoroughly enjoyed having Amonte participate in the Summer Strengths Program. He proved to be a very engaged, motivated, and empathetic participant, contributing greatly to our summer cohort.
Amonte enjoyed how the program utilized multiple ways to deliver the curriculum. He appreciated the interactive component of the program, from breakout sessions to playing games to partnered discussions, which really helped solidify the curriculum for him.
Since completing the BroadFutures program, Amonte is now enrolled at Prince George’s Community College and hopes to pursue a career in special education.
Amonte, we wish you the best of luck in your academic pursuits! We know you will thrive in whatever path you choose to explore.
