Some of you may be aware that in the past the Department of Mathematics has been involved in a mentorship program with high school students.  We would like to continue this program starting in January 2013 and are looking for mentors to be involved.  Student mentees chosen for this program are highly engaged in mathematics and are seeking to expand their knowledge and involvement in mathematics by making connections with those involved in math research.
The time commitment for this is fairly minimal and, with a few exceptions, is based completely on your schedule.  The exceptions to this will be an initial meeting for all involved in the mentorship program in January and a closing meeting in May.  Otherwise you and your mentee would determine a schedule of about once or twice per month to be held on campus based on your schedules.
If you would like more information or if you are interested in participating please email me at by December 21st.  We will be doing pairings in early January with an eye to holding the first meeting with all participants at the end of January.
Thank you all for your time and I hope to have many of you involved in this highly dynamic and beneficial program.
