Next month, the Washington State Opportunity Scholarship Program (WSOS) will provide mentors for nearly 1,000 STEM college students across Washington and is seeking more health care professionals to volunteer for these opportunities. Mentors commit to providing at least eight hours of support to their mentees between October and May. They are provided a curriculum to help guide the experience and do not need not to have the same major as their mentee, or even a major in a STEM field. Rather, the mentor’s job is to use the WSOS curriculum to help mentees navigate the transition from being a college student to a working professional.
