"In National Health Corps, our supervisors are also mentors. Their role is to serve as our adviser; encouraging growth, modeling professionalism, and encouraging a commitment to service and the community.

What I didn’t expect, are the mentors I have found in the volunteers at my host site."

"The end results aren’t just meant for immediate use- what people gain from this experience is meant to stay with them throughout their life. That is why I am able to take what I have learned and use it as I get ready to enter my career. "
