DE High School Seniors Need Your Help

School 417612 1920

With virtual learning and limited extracurriculars, the Class of 2021 is facing an unprecedented senior year. But with your help, we can give them a meaningful learning opportunity that will prepare them for their futures!

Many seniors at Delaware high schools will be starting their senior projects in the fall of 2020 and need virtual mentoring support from local employers. Specifically, we are looking for individual professionals to virtually meet with a student, once per month, to provide advice and guidance on their projects. In an initial meeting, you will help the student identify industry challenges; the student then selects a project within their area of study and performs research on a question or problem. The project develops during their senior year and culminates in a product or presentation, which you will be able to see.

This is a manageable and rewarding experience for employer mentors and we hope you’ll consider participating! Please fill out the below form to signal your interest or get more information about the program.

Virtual senior project mentoring is one of many employer partnership opportunities that the Delaware Office of Work-Based Learning facilitates. Once the school year is underway, we will bring you additional virtual experiences that you and your staff can engage in to develop Delaware’s future workforce and enrich your own professional path.

On behalf of Delaware’s seniors, thank you for considering becoming a virtual senior project mentor! This is a manageable and rewarding experience for employer mentors and we hope you’ll consider participating!
