What is MAPS?

MAPS is no longer recruiting volunteers for Winter Semester

MAPS (Mentorship for Advanced Professional Studies) is a program that helps juniors and seniors in high school through mentorship. We work with the CAPS (Center for Advanced Professional Studies) program in the Provo School District. In the CAPS program, a pair of high school students are assigned a job from a local company in one of four categories:

(1) Business, marketing, and entrepreneurship
(2) Software and design
(3) Health and medicine
(4) Engineering and industrial design.

The students then work throughout the semester to accomplish the task given to them by the company. Mentors help them generate ideas and insights about their task and help them find answers to their questions. Serving through MAPS builds a great mentor-mentee relationship that will help the high school students during some of their most crucial years of decision.

MAPS Vision: We help youth to create and achieve a vision of what they can do and who they can become.

MAPS Mission: We provide high school juniors and seniors with (1) regular guidance and assistance for professional projects and (2) near-peer mentorship and inspiration to pursue professional higher education.
