Here’s how we do it.
Three Pillars of Service Learning™
In all Fields of Healthcare. After school sessions with medical professionals help students build an academic base of understanding, in order to tackle complicated health issues.
Youth use previously developed Knowledge and Skills to give back to their communities. High school and college students collaborate to create a sustainable impact.
We believe that collaboration is the key to harnessing the power of Youth.
MDJunior Ambassadors Implement the National Agenda. They support Hubs and Chapters through operations, academics, and marketing development.
College Youth Act as Mentors. They lead networks of Chapters, medical professionals, and strategic partnerships to create long-lasting community development.
High School Youth are Our Eyes and Ears. They learn about, design, and implement projects in their communities.
The Health Gap
However, 400 million people worldwide still lack access to basic healthcare. In the United States alone, 30 million people remain uninsured, despite improvements in public health policy.THIS is the Health Gap.
The Health Gap refers to disparities created by the social determinants of health such as race, gender, socioeconomic status, and geography.
Problems are entrenched in local community practices and systems, preventing top-down efforts from being effective; yet knowledge and resources within the community remain untapped.THIS is the task of our generation.
MDJunior’s National Agenda sets our goals within the Health Gap.
