The National Safety Council Young Professionals Division is organizing a mentorship program for NSC student members. The program will partner working safety and health professionals (Young Professionals Division members) with a college student who is a current NSC student member. Student members desiring to be partnered with a mentor should contact Christy Maes, NSC program manager, [email protected].
Students will be able to network and regularly communicate with their mentor. The mentor can assist the student member with educational questions, give career advice, offer possible work or internship opportunities, recommended professional resources and more.
