Calling All Parents and Alumni! Be a Thesis Mentor!

As part of their TAG experience, each TAG senior is required to conduct and complete a yearlong thesis project in a field of their choosing. As part of this, students find a mentor who can provide field-specific advice and feedback on the thesis project. If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering as a mentor for one of our seniors as they embark on their thesis journey, please let us know.

 

If you are interested, please fill out this FORM.

 

Please email Mr. Correa if you have questions: acorrea@tagmagnet.org.
