Illinois Science & Technology Institute Mentoring Opportunity

Interested in mentoring opportunities? The Illinois Science & Technology Institute (ISTI) is a nonprofit organization that runs a virtual mentoring platform called the Mentor Matching Engine (MME). MME is an online collaboration tool that pairs Illinois high school students with mentors to collaborate on student-driven research projects.
MME is a great way for professionals to volunteer and give back to younger students - anytime, anywhere. It is also a helpful way to build your own experience in your field of study, build your CV, get students interested in your college, and interact with your community.
We typically ask mentors to commit about half an hour a week once you have been requested into a project. Communication is entirely virtual with all discussion and video conferencing through the platform. Mentoring on MME is a great way to reach students who might not otherwise have the opportunity to work with mentors like you, and is a low and easy commitment to have a meaningful impact.
