National Service Learning Conference in DC


From the World Forum.
New possible project initiative

MDJunior is a Leadership Society with the mission to `Inspire Selfless Service through Mentorship`. The organization was founded by a 9th grader in 2009, as an after school student club. MDJunior today is a US based 501 (c)3 non-profit organization.

We focus on local and global initiatives. In doing that we bring together passionate healthcare professionals including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, para-medics with middle and high school students, to build a mentoring relationship - all with a special focus on underserved communities.



Today we span over 30 chapters in schools across 7 states in the United States and Honduras, with several hundred healthcare professionals, educators, business and community partners - all inspiring selfless service through mentorship.

We’ve received international and national recognition including the President’s Volunteer Service Award, 2 City Proclamations. All this has been possible through thousands of volunteer hours contribution by youth and our mentors, positively impacting patient care and inspiring and making a difference for those who need it the most in our communities.
