Break Down Barriers
The life sciences industry is poised to create opportunities for underserved and minority populations in the San Francisco Bay Area — helping to bridge the opportunity gap for many promising students. While companies offer valuable internship opportunities, it can be difficult for students from these populations to gain access to internships, which are often a path to full-time employment. Project Onramp, a paid summer internship program under the umbrella of Life Science Cares, works with companies to enable these students to get that first internship experience!
Share Your Knowledge
The purpose of mentoring programs is to help connect knowledge seekers (mentees) with knowledge bearers (mentors). These relationships provide mentees the opportunity to connect in meaningful ways with someone whose past experience can help them navigate careers and life. Mentoring is one of the fastest and most authentic ways to transfer knowledge. We are looking for life science industry professionals who want to help our Project Onramp participants thrive during their summer internships.
Sign Up Today!
Life Science Cares Bay Area hopes to find 20+ professionals to mentor students for 8-12 weeks this summer during their internships, meeting one-on-one at least three times. If you would like to mentor an intern (or two!), kindly complete a Mentor Interest Form by May 12, 2023. Once approved, you will be invited to a virtual onboarding session mid-May, followed by a mentor pairing session in early June. Any questions, please contact Director of Programs Bernadette Frias firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!!
