CPHA Mentors on Request 

(previously Mentoring Organization Registry)

M.O.R. for the Future of Public Health

Make a Difference, Grow Our Workforce, Connect with Youth


In 2007, CPHA formed the Mentoring Organization Registry, now called Mentors on Request (MOR), with seven members. Today, the MOR comprised of is 45 organizational members representing a broad range of institutions, including higher education, local and state health departments and non-profits, that collaborate on grants and programs aimed at developing youth and undergraduates as future public health leaders, advocates, and knowledgeable citizens.

 


Who We Are

Unlike Fortune 500 companies that invest in company tours and internships to find young talent for their workplace, CPHA has a different attitude about spending time with students. Even if students do not join the public health workforce, they will be more likely to contribute to a healthy community by practicing healthy behaviors, caring for the environment and becoming effective public health advocates and educated citizens. In short, as career mentors and ambassadors, MOR members never lose when we spend time with youth and young adults.
