The Mission Bay Linked Learning Hub needs mentors in November. 2021. The SFUSD Fall Earn & Learn Health Science Panel needs speakers for December 2, 2021. The Eden Area ROP/Chabot Community College Health/Medical Panel needs speakers for Tuesday, November 30th, 2021.

Summer 

Brain Camp: This outstanding program completed its fifth year in a hybrid format in 2021. The week-long intensive program introduces local high school students to careers in neuroscience. In 2021 there were 39 high school students from 21 different high schools across San Francisco and the East Bay. For their virtual lessons, campers received a “Brain Camp in a Box” package with all the tools they needed to participate. 

The SFUSD College & Career Readiness Internships for Summer 2021 sends us interns for science and non-science internships in a flexible format. The summer 2021 interns have all been placed, but if you are interested in hosting an intern in the future, please contact Ángel-Max Guerrero to ask questions and get started.

UCSF's Science & Health Education Partnership (SEP)

SEP has several excellent programs that our faculty have participated in, such as the summer Internship Program and the fall Bay Area Science Festival. 

Dr. Jeanne Paz and Dr. Scott Zamvil have hosted interns through the Internship Program. 

Each program has a different start date and other parameters. Read more on the SEP website to find a program that works for you.

SF Oasis for Girls

Our colleagues in the Department of Neurological Surgery have established a partnership with SF Oasis for Girls that began in 2017. Marisa McFarlane coordinates activities for three cohorts per year at UCSF.

Faculty/postdocs/staff can participate for the whole four weeks, or just a day or two.  If you can offer an activity for these students, please contact Marisa.
