The UMB CURE Scholars Program is in need of UMB students, faculty, and staff to volunteer as mentors during the 2017-18 school year.
Consider becoming a mentor and nurturing the career of a future health care professional. Your knowledge and experience can make a huge impact on the life of a middle school student from West Baltimore, and the commitment will not require much of your time.
Mentors will be expected to:
- Commit to at least one year of mentorship, with contact at least once a week or bi-weekly.
- Assist their mentee with the transition from student to professional, supporting them in decisions (such as choosing the best high school or college).
- Allow their mentee to shadow them at work or accompany them to a meeting, conference, or seminar.
- Create goals for their own personal and professional development through participation in this program.
Those interested in becoming a mentor are invited to a Lunch & Learn on Thursday, Oct. 5, at noon in the Office of Procurement (Main Conference Room) in the Saratoga Building.
To apply as a mentor, register here.
Do not hesitate to reach out with questions or concerns to Borndavid McCraw, UMB CURE Scholars Program mentoring coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your support in cultivating a vibrant mentorship community!
