Economists predict that, by 2024, the US will have a workforce shortfall of one million STEM professionals. So Mentors, Inc celebrated its 30th anniversary by reinventing its model to engage more youth – particularly students in grades 8 to 12 – in STEM careers. Drawing on three decades of mentorship experience, staff carefully match students with mentors that best meet their needs and interests, and together they define their goals and expectations. Throughout the one- to four-year mentorship, Mentors, Inc offers a series of activities to encourage STEM career exploration, including site visits to employers in a range of industries and occupations, college tours, and a scholarship workshop. Staff provide tailored support, monitoring progress, troubleshooting challenges, and offering incentives for success. The program focuses on students who need mentors most, igniting their interest in 21st century careers. New mentors, and resources, are welcome.
