Connections with active or retired local professionals from a variety of disciplines are provided for participating students, with a special emphasis on matching students with mentors in a field of current interest to each student.

The program will continue its emphasis on attracting a diverse group of student and mentor participants, and to pursue an approach that asks mentors and students to collaborate in building program formats that are relevant to and based on the expressed needs of the student, with mentor encouragement and support. For more information, see the Program Highlights 2018-2019.

The program is seeking a parent volunteer to assist with its social media presence. For more information, please contact John Fossett, Program Director at jnfossett17@gmail.com.[/vcex_teaser]
