The Southwest Environmental Health Sciences Center has partned with Tohono O'odham Community College to create a program that addresses low graduation, transfer, and workforce rates among Tohono O'odham residents. This 5 week program will embrace TOCC students by developing an agenda that directly serves them. We will develop confidence and empowerment among program particpants by challenging them to think and act critically during their internship. Our mentors and faculty will be there to guide them along the way, insuring that they have sense of belonging on campus and have professional resources to rely on. Our staff is determined to prepare them for their academic and professional careers.
