YSF Canada Mentors 

YSF Canada has formed a partnership with the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) to help provide mentors for the Youth Science Foundation (YSF) Canada's Young Scientists Mentorship program.

The goal of the program is to connect young scientists with the world of professional science and engineering-- to help them learn more about how science really works and what scientists do. A mentorship can

- helping with science fair projects, ideas or problems;
- providing laboratory training and experience;
- giving advice through an on-line mentorship--sharing their stories,
  passion and experiences to inspire and to challenge you to achieve
  new goals; and,
- exploring science career and education options.

An invitation to apply has already been sent to over 1000 past CWSF finalists who are still in grades 8-12, and is open to any young scientists who would be interested in participating in the mentorship program.
