PSI participants will be 24 rising juniors and seniors with at least one year of Russian instruction from secondary schools with majority Latino and/or African-American populations: Pritzker College Prep and The Noble Academy (Chicago, IL); we will also recruit from among economically disadvantaged minority students at Friends School (Baltimore). Our target proficiency goals are to advance students from Novice Mid to Novice High (in speaking, listening, writing) and Intermediate Low (in reading). Upon returning to their schools, students continue Russian instruction and act as mentors to their fellow students; the PSI Abroad in Latvia, our NSLI-Y project, allows PSI alumni to study in a six-week Russian-language immersion program in the summer after their STARTALK experience.
