Public/Private Partnerships in Mentoring: Genentech & South San Francisco Unified School District
Presented by: MENTOR, Genentech and South San Francisco Unified School District
This month’s IMPACT webinar will feature an innovative, STEM-focused public/private partnership between Genentech and the South San Francisco Unified School District. The partnership has created Futurelab, a science education mentoring program that inspires the next generation of scientists. With unique, hands-on programming designed to engage students in elementary, middle and high school, Futurelab fosters excitement for science in students, goes beyond the classroom to bring science to life, and empowers students with the tools and knowledge to pursue a career in science. In this webinar, leaders from Genentech and the South San Francisco Unified School District will discuss the origins of their partnership, provide a thorough overview of K-12 programming, and highlight how Futurelab is good for business and the community. We will discuss lessons learned, partnership advice, program outcomes and employee engagement tactics, leaving plenty of time for questions from webinar participants.
