Welcome back to our 6th year of the Yes2Kollege Minority Health Professions Mentor Program (MHPMP) Summer Job Shadow Opportunities for middle/high school (sometimes elementary and college) students and parents! Yeah!
We are beginning our job shadows a week earlier this year, due to the wonderful number of opportunities provided by our Mentors! We are hoping that you begin, now, to schedule for our dates, weighing the great opportunity this is for our African American students.
This a a great opportunity for any youth interested in learning more about health professions and the possibilities for building early relationships with African American professionals who look like you!
Below you will find a "refrigerator" version (to post on the fridge) of our June/July calendar of Health Professions Job Shadows. Please feel free to download and distribute throughout your networks.
All job shadow opportunities are on a first come, first served basis and are limited due to the space the Mentors have at their facilities. Complete your application today! Sign up NOW to reserve your space.

The MHPMP provides job shadows, medical health tours and observation opportunities, role playing, one-on-one interviews, and college support for more than 200 students each year!

The students are “exposed” to these role-models, - individuals who look like the students and may have grown up in similar neighborhoods like them - building relationships and sharing stories of their challenges and successes.
These mentorships are the foundation of our program, as they open our student’s eyes and give them the opportunity to dream, to realize that they too can become doctors.
For the past five years, MHPMP has sponsored recruiting conferences for more than 500, sixth through twelfth grade African American students and their parents to learn about potential medical school, professional healthcare programs and career/job opportunities from African American healthcare professionals.
More than 70 health professional mentors (i.e. surgeons, chiropractor, dentist, nurses, clinical psychologist, county health director, and medical school students) volunteer to host job shadow opportunities throughout the summer.
Summer of 2018, our 23 job shadow opportunities included medical school & college campuses, clinics, operating rooms, research laboratories, science centers, the California legislature, and CPR certification.
