Whether it’s in Laurel, Suitland or Oxon Hill, the Alsobrooks Summer Passport Experience (Passport) was a fantastic way for youth (ages 12-18) to pursue new interests, improve existing skills, and make new friends. Passport has researched and curated the best summer activities and the best programs for teens in middle school. These one-of-a-kind programs tend to focus on specific pursuits like STEM, health and beauty, self-care, mental health, trades, entrepreneurship and more. The program is based on three Es: Education, Entrepreneurship and Experience/Entertainment offered youth more than 25 opportunities for fun and growth. In its inaugural year [2021], the Alsobrooks Summer Passport Experience touched the lives of more than 1,100 youth from around Prince George’s County. Youth were provided with a program passport, tee shirt, materials and meals (when applicable). Many of the programs allowed students an opportunity to find themselves, have fun, meet new friends, learn from local experts in their field and experience new adventures right here in the crown jewel of Maryland – Prince George’s County. The educational programs were great for improving the teen’s knowledge base in a specialized area while providing them with a way to experience a subject that he or she may love.
