The LAUNCH program at Elmbrook schools is still in need of mentors with business experience to assist students with their LAUNCH projects! Over 400 students and only 35 mentors to this point. LAUNCH is hoping to reach 70 mentors.
Please consider spending one hour, or one hour a week, for as many weeks as you feel comfortable with, helping the Students at LAUNCH as they develop their LAUNCH projects.
Click "Read more . . . " to discover the needs.
The basic responsibility is to attend a session and spend time with a team of 3 to 5 LAUNCH students who are developing a response to a problem posed to them by an area business. Once you hear their description of the problem and their thoughts on solving it, you can make observations based on your business experience or provide direction on resources they might find helpful.
If you or your spouse or even a friend or neighbor have interest in assisting in this venture, please click on the link below to activate a "LAUNCH ENGAGEMENT FORM" The various business strands in the program are described and what areas of expertise the program are desired. It takes less than five minutes to review and complete the form. After completing, just click "SUBMIT." Within a week someone from LAUNCH will be in touch with you and advise on the next steps, locations, etc.
The business strands that LAUNCH now has are Manufacturing, Teaching, Engineering, Analytics, Hospitality, IT, Healthcare, and Media. Anyone who has experience in these fields can provide wonderful insights to these high school juniors and seniors about these fields. Once again, one hour or one hour a week can make a big difference.
LAUNCH sends out an updated quarterly newsletter describing the program, the business partners, and programs they have developed. If you care to receive this newsletter, please contact Dan Roads at He will send you the most current newsletter and add you to the mailing list for future mailings. For privacy purposes, no one's name or email address will be provided to LAUNCH without your permission.
