LEAD E-Mentor Application
We are looking for women who are college students, recent graduates, and Engineering professionals to become E-Mentors! To bridge the gap between the high school classroom environment and college or the workplace, the Elizabeth Seton High School LEAD program established an E-Mentoring Program for participating students. An E-Mentor serves as a mentor to a student through offering guidance on STEM classes, projects, college decisions, and professionalism via e-mail.
What to expect: We would love for our mentors to commit to one e-mail communication per week for 8 to 10 weeks between September and November. That's it! Any additional communication is up to you, but we understand how busy college students and industry professionals are!
How to apply: Please fill out the (new and shorter) online application. If you have been a mentor before - it's less than a 5 minute process. The link to the application is below. In addition to the application, please send a pdf of your resume to: email@example.com. Applications are due by Monday, 17 September 2018 at 11:59. Please reach contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested, but cannot meet this deadline.

Who can apply: Females studying/working in Engineering, Architecture, or Computer Science fields. Please specify your major/work field in the application. If you do not see your field in this list, please feel free to still apply! Any undergraduate student, recent graduate, or professional is encouraged to apply.
Why should you apply? A mentorship program is beneficial to both the mentor and mentee! Having an impact on younger students and being active in the community provides personal satisfaction to the mentor. Additionally, it is a great program to participate in for professional development. Being a mentor demonstrates leadership and knowledge in the STEM fields, your community involvement, and that you are proactive about helping others.
Meet-up Day: Based on feedback from past years, we plan on having a mentor/mentee meet-up day towards the end of the program in the evening for the local mentors. More information to come! If you are not local, don't let this deter you!
Our statistics show that the program and mentors make a difference! Of the students who graduated, many have entered into college with a declared major in the STEM or design fields. Advice and engagement from mentors like you make a difference!
In addition to applying, please encourage your peers/co-workers/classmates to also apply! There are 110 students in the program, and we are aiming for a 1:1 ratio for E-Mentors to pair with them! Please forward this e-mail to ASME, Tau Beta Pi, SWE, NSBE, ALCHE, ASCE, SHPE, CSEE, and other STEM related chapters of your school or within your professional network!
