Minorities in the Health Professions Pipeline Program
My Campus encompasses both weekly and quarterly interactions with minority youth. The program's focus is to inspire, motivate and educate our local high school students about the health professions through fun, hands-on activities with LLU student volunteers. Volunteers play an important role in mentorship, by leading workshops about their schools and through spending time with youth during off-campus activities.
My Campus puts on weekly presentations for the Sherman Indian High School Introduction to the Health Careers class. Loma Linda University student and faculty speakers are invited to come and share with multiple classes about their careers and engage the students in meaningful participation. Days and times vary by quarter.
Quarterly, My Campus events take place on LLU’s campus, as different LLU schools are featured at a Sunday afternoon event for minority high school students in the Inland Empire. Informative, interactive presentations and speed-mentoring are key to the day’s program. Volunteers are needed during the speed-mentoring session speak to high school studenta about their own career journey and share advice and inspiration.
