We are currently looking for volunteer who is employed in a healthcare-related career from a corporate partner site to serve as a mentor for high school students. The mentor’s primary role is to serve as a resource to the student by sharing insights and providing general career advice about the workplace, careers and education, giving the student the ability to practice communication skills, assisting the student in developing professional skills, reinforcing the connection between academic learning and professional skills, and providing opportunities for workplace exposure and workplace skill building.
