Mentors needed for PTECH students at Dunbar High School

Mentors are needed for students at Baltimore's Dunbar High School participating in one of Maryland's first two Pathways in Technology Early College High School, or P-TECH, programs.

The program offers participating high school students mentoring, paid internships, two years of free college-level instruction, and advanced training in STEM-based fields so that, upon graduation, they would be in line for tech industry jobs. Johns Hopkins University is among the program's sponsors at Dunbar.

P-TECH at Dunbar is currently seeking mentors for a cohort of 50 freshmen for this school year. Mentors are encouraged to make three or four in-person contacts with their mentee each year, but they are certainly welcome to connect more frequently. Weekly communication—by phone, email, or text message—is also encouraged.
