8ofyo7ormq bz project true mentorship feature 1206 2016 720

Mentorship is a relationship in which a more experienced or more knowledgeable person helps to guide a less experienced or less knowledgeable person.

In Project TRUE, three high school students are mentored by an undergraduate to form a research team. Each research team is stationed at a WCS zoo and is mentored by a Fordham University PhD student (Biology) and a WCS Instructor.

Teams are placed at the Bronx Zoo, Central Park Zoo, and Prospect Park Zoo and are supported by WCS and Fordham staff and scientists.

Altogether, Project TRUE is a 70+ person team conducting urban ecology research across NYC. Post-Project TRUE summer research, you will be part of a growing alumni community that will continue to support you in your professional career. Project TRUE mentors continue to help with:

  • College application process
  • Letters of recommendation
  • Job/scholarship opportunities
  • Career advice
