Shadowing Opportunities

Diversity photo. Inclusive Safe space for everyone.

Students that participate in HOPE gain access to meaningful careers in the healthcare industry. Students also receive research and instructional support in pursuing those careers. In addition to the youth apprentice contract, students and mentors are also offered access to job shadowing and academic tuition reimbursements.


HOPE mentors are typically college-aged students in our partnerships that are matched with a high school student during a HOPE session. We also found that some of our HOPE mentors decided to change majors into healthcare after they participated in the event.  See where HOPE can take you too!
Please note that a soft background check will be completed, if you volunteer for this position.
