With research and education at the core of the hospital’s mission, students of all ages find opportunities to learn and train through programs at the MGH. The MGH Youth Scholars, a program of the Center for Community Health Improvement, has hosted hundreds of high school students from Boston, Chelsea and Revere throughout the last two decades to encourage an interest in science, technology, engineering and math and offer the opportunity to work alongside professionals in varying departments and specialties.

In the latest “I am MGH” video, now available on the MGH YouTube channel, three MGH Youth Scholars graduating high school this year share how the program’s internships, job training and mentorship impacted their future plans. And, three former Youth Scholars share their experiences coming home to the MGH after college and offer their congratulations and well-wishes to this year’s graduating class.

The MGH Youth Scholars celebrated their graduation from the program at the hospital during a special ceremony on June 7. The MGH and Brigham and Women’s Hospital also are hosting an inaugural job fair for Youth Scholar graduates and alumni on June 20 from 10:30 am to noon at Partners HealthCare at Assembly Row.
