The UCLA-HHMI Pathways to Success Program is currently looking for upperclassmen and Graduate students to participate in the Pathways Mentoring Program. The Pathways Program (directed by Dr. Tracy Johnson) is a 4-year, intensive, honors-level program for undergraduate students majoring in the life sciences, with an interest in the bio-sciences. The Pathways program is committed to the academic success and professional development of highly motivated students from diverse backgrounds. Many of the Pathways students intend to pursue careers in the life sciences and apply to PhD, MD, or PhD/MD programs.
As a Pathways mentor you will have the opportunity to connect and build a relationship with an undergraduate student by sharing resources, advice, knowledge, etc., based on your experiences. If you are interested in serving a mentor to Pathways students please complete the application here. We hope to match students with mentors by Week 2 of WQ20.
If you would like to learn more about the mentoring component of the program, please feel free to reach out to me.
*Note: We match students based on needs, similar interest, major, career goals, etc. If you fill out an application and but you are not matched right away, chances are we haven’t found the best match yet. But, your information will still be recorded in our database. As soon as we find a good match we will reach out.
My name is Alyssa; I’m the Executive Director of the Yleana Leadership Foundation. I am reaching out to you today in an effort to recruit students for paid summer internships at the Yleana Leadership Academy, which seeks to decrease the achievement gap for low-SES high schoolers from urban areas through SAT score increase. Over 50% of our kids are first-gen and over 95% are of color. For our staff, who are college students and recent college grads, this is way more than just a summer internship - it’s a chance to meet a child who will touch their lives and way of thinking forever. Yleana staff who reflect on their experiences feel their time spent at camp was transformative, eye-opening, and a cherished memory.
Excitingly, this opportunity also pays! Staff get room and board for the duration of the summer as well as receiving a stipend between $2500-3500 AND UP (depending on experience) for the two-month commitment - from June 10 - August 10, 2020 - as well as the opportunity to continue working through the end of August at one of our Follow-up Programs at $25/hr.
The Yleana Leadership Academy is interested in recruiting both grads and undergrads for a transformative SAT summer camp that is part SAT boot camp, part higher order thinking skills development, part leadership academy, part on-campus college experience, and part traditional summer camp. We are looking for people who would be willing to work hard and have an amazing time creating a summer camp experience for kids. It's a ton of work but a LOT of fun!
We’re hiring for three different positions within our organization this summer; click the link below for more information about that position.
