Young Leaders Access Program 2021

Posted by Tim on February 13, 2021 in Career Opportunities, Internships, Job Opportunity, Networking, Student Job Opportunities

As a member of its Board of Directors, I am excited to inform you that applications for MCW Global’s 2021 Young Leaders Access Program are now available.

The program is open to young people between 18 and 26 who want to further develop their leadership and project management skills in a global setting. A critical component of the program is mentorship – where participants are paired up with a mentor for an entire year to help plan and work on something they care about.

We are looking for passionate youth who want to invest in their personal and professional development, and would appreciate it if you can share the opportunity with your network and the young people you interact with. 

To read more about the program, please click here.

Also, attached is a flyer you might use.

We hope to have youth from your professional and personal network apply to the program.

Tutoring Opportunity for Buffalo Public Schools

Posted by Tim on November 1, 2020 in Career Opportunities, Honors Experiences, Honors Program Announcements, Job Opportunity, Networking, New Programs, Tutoring, Volunteering, Volunteers Needed

We are beginning a tutoring program with high school students from Buffalo Public Schools, and as such, we are seeking undergraduate-level tutors, particularly those in math and science. 

Tutoring will be held Monday-Thursday between 2-5 p.m. We are asking that those who are interested commit to at least two afternoons per week.

Ideally, we are looking for tutors who could qualify for a Work Study program; that would allow them to be paid for their time. Otherwise, the tutors would need to work on a volunteer basis.

You can apply on Handshake and can certainly reach out to me directly with any questions. 

Thank you for your consideration and help with this matter!
