- We’re have launched a new Facebook “group” (which is different than the Facebook “page” we use for official announcements). Please click on this link to sign up.
- The YCC mentorship program pairs junior scholars with senior scholars in their fields in a one-to-one mentoring relationship. We are very grateful to Rana Lehr-Lehnardt, a member of the YCC Linkages and Engagement Advisory Group, for leading this project this year and matching approximately 10 junior scholars with senior mentors. The mentorship matches are made once a year. If you missed the opportunity to sign up, please watch for an email announcement later this year.
