Description: Health Science Mentors (HSM) is a graduate student organization that works with Violence Intervention and Prevention (VIP). Volunteers are matched with local students from VIP for a long-term, one-on-one mentorship program to help them choose a career in the STEM fields. Clients of VIP are middle and high school students from local communities affected by gang-related violence. The mentorship program works to keep students in school and inspire them to pursue a career in the STEM fields. HSM has also recently partnered with Central Juvenile Hall to establish a similar mentorship program with housed youth.

Accepting Volunteers:Yes — Open to graduate students
