As part of the four week program and partnership, accompanied by their program mentor, Dr. Lisa Thomas and Dean of Students, Arin Miller-Tait, students will tour various government buildings in Cleveland, including ADAMHS Board, Cuyahoga Arts and Culture, Cuyahoga City Council and the Cleveland Housing Court.
