  • Program is based on the 1993 School to Careers
    model with three core components

  • Mentoring

Health Careers Academy
  • Partnership with a nearby high school in the Los

    School) which is also Cedars-Sinai adopted high
    school. Students take public transportation in
    order to meet their work assignments.
  • 25 high school juniors are selected by an
    interview process each year to participate with
    continuing seniors in the two year program
    earning 5 credits each semester. This program is
    a class under the ROP section of the Los Angeles

Health Careers Academy
  • School Based Training
  • Taught onsite by a LA Unified School District
    Teacher. In classes, students learn basic job
    skills and earn high school credits.
  • Nursing Institute provides an educator who is
    specifically designated to work with a cohort of
    Health Careers Academy students.

    interested in BSN or Career Ladder programs. 2nd

Why Mentors?
  • The Stand Deliver Mentoring Component provides
    one-on-one relationships between students and
    employees of the Medical Center. It is strongly
    believed that the mentoring process plays a key
    role in the efforts to identify, recruit, and
    retain highly skilled and motivated individuals
    in the health care workforce.
  • The program enables employers to become involved
    with students at a pivotal point in a young
    persons life. The development of a bond of
    mutual respect and consideration sets the
    foundation to enable the mentor/mentee pair to
    explore interests and options to eventually set
    realistic academic and career goals.
  • In addition, mentors are able to provide students
    with the opportunity to learn how the knowledge,
    skills and abilities developed in school
    realistically relate to the work of work. Given
    the clear need to focus on the future, student
    mentoring is a vital link in helping ensure that
    the students of today become the successful
    students of tomorrow, providing the mentor with
    an opportunity to make a difference in a young
    persons life.

Mentoring Styles
  • Team Mentoring
  • Several mentors are assigned to a group of
    mentees taking place in a central location. For
    busy mentors this Buddy System can assure that
    if one has to miss a session, another can fill
  • Team mentoring can offer
  • Sociability
  • Flexibility
  • Built-In Support

Mentoring Styles
  • One-On-One Mentoring
  • Traditional mentoring pairs one person with
    another. The ability to bond between the mentor
    and mentee is consistent. Spending time with
    just one person can help set specific goals based
    on their own interests.
  • Example Big Brother/Big Sisters of America
  • One-on-One programs include
  • Intensive Screening
  • Family First
  • Ongoing Support

Mentoring Styles
  • School-Based Mentoring
  • All meetings and activities take place at the
    mentees school. The school pairs with the
    company or organization that provides the
    mentors. Activities are usually geared toward
    academics but older students can work on
  • School-Based Mentoring is characterized by
  • Built-In Activities
  • Support
  • Structure

Mentoring Styles
  • Workplace Mentoring
  • Activities and goals depend on the type of
    business and employees interest. Employees gain
    release time to mentoring activities. The focus
    is often on developing technical skills or
    understanding the workings of the business
  • Workplace Mentoring
  • Unique Resources
  • Real-World Exposure
  • Convenience
  • Company Morale

Mentoring Styles
  • Workplace Mentoring
  • Skills Enhancement
  • Job-specific skills and social and personal
  • Social Networking and Advocacy
  • Recommending youth to potential employers
  • Helping youth to resist negative influences
  • Enhanced Self-Concept
  • Mentors positive appraisal

Mentoring Styles
  • E-Mentoring
  • On-line mentoring or e-mentoring, is a mentoring
    relationship conducted via the Internet. E-mail
    can be the exclusive vehicle for young people and
    mentors to connect or it can be additional
    communication tool for those who ordinarily meet
    in person. Still shares the goal of establishing
    a trusting, nurturing positive relationship.
