HFCSC Program Volunteer Options:

1) Conexiones: A Career Mentorship Program

The Conexiones Program offers the Latinos In Technology Scholarship recipients an opportunity to partner with a Latinx professional in Silicon Valley. In partnership with local Latinx Employee Resource Groups, this five-month program will focus on leadership and professional development skills. A mentor may share with student information about his or her own career path, as well as provide guidance, motivation, emotional support, and role modeling. A mentor may also help with exploring careers, setting goals, developing contacts, and identifying resources.

Each session will address professional skills such as resume building, interview questions, improving social media and LinkedIn profiles, and an introduction to a professional in the scholar’s field.
