About Vulcan Community Health Care Mentorship Program: Students were mentored by doctors, nurses, occupational therapists, health care aides, lab technicians as well as dental assistants and dentists. Throughout the Mentorship Program, students completed a culminating activity that explored the fields they are interested in and what they may need to get there. Each project is as unique as the ladies who created it. The entire experience began with the students exploring what they wanted to gain knowledge about. They created their driving questions. Why did they want this? What could they learn from their mentor? Their projects continually evolved as they dove deeper and their curiosity created new driving questions.
