WSBA Partnership with PA eMentoring

In another collaborative effort WSBA has partnered with PA eMentoring. PA eMentoring is a chance to give guidance to a high school student who, below the surface, is just as nervous and scared as you were.

In fact, by giving just 30 minutes a week from your desk or home computer, an online career eMentor can provide the guidance and reinforcement necessary to positively impact a student for a lifetime.

The program uses working and retired adults and mature college students serving as online career mentors and a structured online curriculum to help give young people the knowledge and skills they need to "get real" about their futures - "real" about the demands and opportunities within the job market, and "real" about a plan that leads to their eventual success.

The ultimate goal of PA eMentoring is to help students achieve success after high school by providing them with a detailed, realistic post secondary plan that is created with and supported by a career mentor.

Please email me at if you are interested.

Linda Handley
WSBA, Assistant Executive Director
