Local High School Students Offered Mentors

UBC mentoring opportunities for local high school students will soon be made available via a web-based service called UBC Mentor Centre.

The virtual centre is being launched this month and is designed to help teachers secure mentoring experiences for their students. Opportunities include guided group visits, supervised use of lab equipment, and e-mail consultations with faculty members on school projects.

Originated by Asst. Prof. Jane Roskams of the Dept. of Zoology, the gateway Web site will also be linked to other community learning resources.

UBC Mentor Centre is a pilot project of the Vancouver School Board and the faculties of Medicine and Science.

For further information or to volunteer as a mentor, contact Lucia Wilson at lwilson@cmmt.ubc.ca.
