The Mission of the Health Career Collaborative is to provide mentorship, engaging health curriculum, and exposure to health careers to high school students from low-income, underrepresented minority communities.
1. engage students in project-based learning with a focus on science and health care related issues
2. encourage students to graduate from high school (current graduation rates at partner high schools 50-60%)
3. model a diverse range of health-related career pathways
4. empower students to identify the most pressing health needs in their community and engage students in community-based health promotion activities
