Young Homeschool Scholar Society

Young Homeschool Scholars Society presents a special opportunity for homeschool students to delve into the field of medicine in an engaging and interactive manner. Through the Pre-Mini Medical Institute Project, students can gain insights from professionals in the medical field who are actively engaged in their work. Participants will get the opportunity to delve into different facets of medicine and science, along with their real-world applications. The project aims to inspire young minds to consider a future in healthcare by offering a hands-on experience that highlights the importance of compassion, knowledge, and dedication in the field of medicine.

Our mission

Our mission is to provide early exposure to careers in science and medicine.

Introducing children to different careers in science and medicine at a young age can help break down stereotypes and misconceptions about the healthcare industry. It can show them that anyone, regardless of their background, can succeed and make a difference in the lives of others.

By introducing young minds to the fascinating world of medicine and science early on, we can spark curiosity and inspire a passion for learning. Hands-on activities, visits to medical facilities, and interactions with professionals in these fields can open up a whole new world of possibilities for children, encouraging them to explore the wonders of the human body, nature, and technology. This exposure not only broadens their horizons but also lays a solid foundation for potential future careers in these rewarding and impactful fields.

Our vision

Our team of volunteers for this project are committed to community engagement and spreading knowledge about medicine & science.

The goal is to spark curiosity, encourage critical thinking, and foster a love for learning within homeschool students. We believe that by providing such immersive experiences, we can help shape the next generation of innovators and problem-solvers in the medical and scientific communities.

Our team

Our team's core strength is rooted in our collective passion. We aim to attract top volunteer talent from diverse fields, ranging from bioengineering to neuroscience to nursing, fostering a varied and energetic team united in a shared mission. Each volunteer brings a distinct perspective and set of skills, adding their expertise and enthusiasm to our projects. By leveraging our combined knowledge and creativity, we drive innovation and create a significant positive influence in our community. Embracing our unique qualities, we come together with a common dedication to improving the world for everyone.
