Volunteers needed for K-12 Biomedical Workshops

Posted by Pennsylvania Society for Biomedical Research on February 4, 2020
PSBR is partnering with ENVISION YOU – a community youth initiative by the Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church in Philadelphia. ENVISION YOU is an annual program designed to introduce students to professions, trades and other vocational opportunities that are open to them after high school. The goal is foster student awareness of professional options to which they may not otherwise be exposed. PSBR has been invited to offer K-12 students an engaging workshop focused on biomedical research.  On average the program has about 120 total students (K-12) and the selected professional topic is presented to the students through age appropriate activities and discussions. We request volunteer support to run a PSBR-provided activity or to participate in a student-focused discussion.  This opportunity is coming up quickly, so if you are interested, please let me know as soon as you are able so we may include you in the planning stages of the event. 
  • When: 3/28/20
  • Duration: 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM
  • Where: Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church
  • What we need: We need the support of our volunteers to provide assistance for the following tasks: 1) Run a biomedical activity with the students, 2) Act as a workshop mentor, guiding students with their tasks and answering questions, and 3) be part of a career exploration panel.
