Want to make a difference in a teenager’s life? Did you have a mentor that made a difference in yours? We are looking for mentors to share career information with 11th grade high school students.

Who you are: We are mostly looking for professionals in a science-related career, or non-science professionals working in a science-related organization or company.

Who we are: Carlmont High School’s Biotechnology Institute, a small learning community for 50 science-minded 10th grade students. Where we are: In Belmont, 22 miles south of San Francisco.

Time Commitment:

Attendance at our Meet-with-Your-Mentor Breakfasts on November 3 and May 18 from 9-10 AM. We will provide a structured activity at these breakfasts that will give you and your mentee a chance to bond.

Job shadow. We would love for you to invite your mentee to shadow you at work one day, sometime between November and May.

1-2 contacts each month between November and May. Contacts can be by phone, email, or in person, if convenient.

What do mentors actually do? As a mentor, you will share information about your career and the path that you took to get where you are today. Discussing your education, previous jobs and promotions and what your role looks like on a day-to-day basis is the cornerstone of our program.
