E-mentors Wanted! Social Mobility Foundation: Support the next generation of aspiring scientists
The Social Mobility Foundation (SMF) is a charity that aims to make a practical improvement in social mobility for high-achieving young people from low-income backgrounds. Could you help?
With the assistance of professionals, the Social Mobility Foundation support more than a 1,000 young people every year, who have the ability to flourish in the top universities and professions but who lack the encouragement and networks to help them get there.
The SMF are currently looking for professionals to get involved and provide support by e-mentoring students interested in a career in STEM. As an e-mentor you would support their next cohort of sixth formers by giving them the opportunity to have a 1:1 relationship with a medical professional who can communicate with them for 15-30 minutes every two weeks, predominately via email.
Mentors advise students on a range of topics: increasing understanding of careers and professional life, helping access more opportunities, and university applications.
