Want to make a difference in a teenager's life? Did you have a mentor that impacted you? Carlmont High School's BTI is looking for mentors to share career information with juniors. Easy communication through email, phone and in person has a lasting impact on a student.
Who you are: We are mostly looking for professionals in a science-related career, or non-science professionals working in a science-related organization or company.
Who we are: Carlmont High School’s Biotechnology Institute, a small learning community for 50 science-minded 11th grade students. Where we are: In Belmont, 22 miles south of San Francisco.
Attendance at our Meet-with-Your-Mentor Breakfasts on November 3 and May 18 from 9–10 AM. We will provide a structured activity at these breakfasts that will give you and your mentee a chance to bond.
Job shadow. We would love for you to invite your mentee to shadow you at work one day, sometime between November and May.
1-2 contacts each month between November and May. Contacts can be by phone, email, or in person, if convenient.
What do mentors actually do? As a mentor, you will share information about your career and the path that you took to get where you are today. Discussing your education, previous jobs and promotions and what your role looks like on a day-to-day basis is the cornerstone of our program.

Two sessions are planned:
Session 1 (9:45-10:45) -- Biotech Career Round Tables -- Professionals will speak in a small group format about their career, educational background, brief job description and pros & cons of your field. Students will have 15 minutes with each professional and then rotate to the next. Ideally, a variety of fields will be represented.
Session 2 (10:55-11:55) -- Hot Topics -- Professionals will each speak on a different hot topic in the Biotech Field. This will also be 15 minutes, in which the professional can introduce the concept, provide a bit of background information to understand the technology, explain the technology, its promise and the ethical issues regarding its use. Some of the proposed topics could be:
