P4P has afforded medical students the opportunity to become mentors to high school students from disadvantaged backgrounds. P4P's goal is to provide guidance and direction for underserved and underrepresented youths from King/Drew Medical Magnet High School interested in pursuing a career in the medical field. This project provides mentors as role models to influence and encourage adolescents to strive toward their future endeavors.
Mentors will educate youths about the process of achieving their goals and help them prepare to overcome potential obstacles. It also helps to increase the rate at which high school students graduate and enroll in four-year universities. P4P believes in increasing not only high school graduation rates but also increasing diversity at all levels of education. Students are encouraged to volunteer for various community service events including Project Santa Claus. P4P, which was started through Drew/UCLA allows other UCLA medical students who are not a part of the Drew/UCLA to interact and participate in community service mentor/mentee events in the Compton area.
