What is a Summer Research Mentorship with LBR?

In short, being a Summer Research Mentor means gaining access to a multitude of learning opportunities, centered around building your skills to understand and communicate with others, especially about topics of race and culture. You will use these skills to connect with a high school student and support them, as they work to complete a community centered research project.
