National Mentoring Month

ITEST Projects inspire students through mentorship

January is National Mentoring Month!

In 2002 the Harvard School of Public Health and MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership, launched a national campaign to raise awareness about the power of relationships and highlight the benefits of mentoring. Mentors play a fundamental role for students at any stage of life to ask questions, search for meaning, and discover answers that give meaning professionally, personally, or spiritually. ITEST Programs explore innovative methods to increase youth engagement in STEM and ICT careers, they see the value in incorporating mentoring components into their programming that allow students to engage with both adult and near-peer mentors in ways that build their skills, knowledge and interest in STEM education and career pathways. Below is a list of mentoring resources from the ITEST program including projects, publications and curriculum.
