The Montgomery County Business Roundtable for Education (MCBRE) is looking for Hispanic professionals to mentor high school students over the next six months in the DC/suburban Maryland area (time commitment is minimal - a few hours a month with one all-day conference in late October). It's a phenomenal opportunity to make a difference in the lives of local kids and to network/build your own resume.
Research confirms that mentoring has a number of positive benefits such as decreasing drop-out rates and absenteeism, and increasing educational achievement and emotional development. The Montgomery County Business Roundtable for Education (MCBRE), whose mission is to connect the classroom to the workplace, has a unique opportunity for you to serve as a Professional Advisor (mentor) to Montgomery County public school sophomores. The Student Emerging Leaders Program (SELP) is a 20 hour commitment and volunteer opportunity that for 10 years, has helped to nurture young Black and Hispanic youth into solid leaders.
MCBRE & MCPS are seeking Hispanic professionals to join our 2013-2014 SELP program. This year we have accepted 45 Hispanic students from all over the county to participate in SELP! Join us and share your knowledge, expertise and experience with these future leaders.

Lastly, you will be invited to attend our culminating event - a congressional reception hosted by Congressman Chris Van Hollen to recognize our student leaders.
