Become an advocate for college students interested in a safety career by introducing them to free student membership offered by NSC. Advocates visit local colleges and universities that have safety industry-related classes and clubs. They explain NSC membership, review student membership program documents and give a presentation on the benefits of student membership, NSC scholarships, the NSC Divisions and the NSC mentoring program.
Get more details about the advocate program, and download the PowerPoint presentation to get started right away.
The NSC Young Professionals Division also has organized a FREE undergraduate student mentor program that partners working safety and health professionals (Young Professionals Division members) with active NSC undergraduate student members. Students will regularly communicate with their mentor, who can assist with educational questions, give career advice, connect students with possible work or internship opportunities, recommend professional resources, and more.
Undergraduate university students interested in working with a mentor should contact Christy Maes, NSC program manager, [email protected], to indicate their desire to participate in this free program. Interested student members should indicate their field of interest so they can be matched with a mentor most effectively.
