Also featured is a workshop on poetry and spoken word hosted by English Professor Jeff Nessler at the College of Saint Rose. Other people in the film are Dr. Lisa Carr, professor at Sage College and Guidance counselor at Bethlehem High School and Mr. Walter Simpkins, founder of Community Fathers.

During the summer program students went on several college visits, attended the Harlem Book Fair, and participated in a week long Tech Valley Camp.
