Worthwhile To Help High School Youth

Mentoring/Scholarship Program





Building a brighter future


To help develop tomorrow’s technical talent, Northrop Grumman’s Electronic Systems (ES) sector, headquartered near Baltimore Washington International Airport, introduced the WORTHY (Worthwhile To Help High School Youth) mentoring program in September of 1998.
This program was successfully introduced to the Charlottesville/Albemarle area in 2007. To date, 17 local students have benefited from being mentored by some of ES’s many talented employees. During 2011, up to five additional students will be added to the program. Participants should express a desire to pursue a college degree in science, technology, engineering, or math.

Mentoring and much more


As part of the program, each mentee is assigned to two mentors. Mentees will spend one full day each month with their mentors, who will provide an introduction to the business world, keys to achieving success, career guidance, and academic advice.
Mentees in the WORTHY Program may be eligible for part-time summer enrichment opportunities through Northrop Grumman as available in order to help them to compete in the job market after college graduation.
Upon successful completion of the program, Northrop Grumman will provide eligible mentees with multi-year partial scholarships to attend an accredited college or university.

Eligibility


To be considered for participation in the WORTHY Program, applicants must reside in Albemarle County; attend a public high school within Albemarle County/Charlottesville City limits; be a 10th or 11th grader for the 2011-2012 school year; plan to major in science, technology, engineering, or math; be enrolled in college preparatory curriculum; be able to maintain a 3.0 grade point average while enrolled in the program and have earned a 3.0 for at least two consecutive semesters prior to the application period; and be able to secure a Department of Defense Clearance (must be a U.S. citizen to qualify).
Additionally, the program seeks students who participate in school or community activities and demonstrate strong leadership and good communication skills.
To apply for the WORTHY Program, students must be recommended by their math/science teacher and school guidance counselor/representative or community leader.

Selection


The focus and primary objective of the WORTHY program is to select Albemarle County high school students who are challenged by their environment, available resources and support systems, yet demonstrate the academic excellence and leadership ability necessary to successfully complete college studies in science, technology, engineering, or math.

Mentees will be assigned to two mentors who will spend several hours each month with them, providing an introduction to the business world, keys to achieving success, career guidance and academic advice. They will also have the opportunity to assist their mentors with projects. Mentors and mentees will be encouraged to participate in activities outside of the corporate environment to foster cultural exchange.
Mentees in the WORTHY program will be offered part-time, summer employment with Northrop Grumman in order to help prepare them to compete in the job market after college graduation.
Supplementing these work assignments will be learning experiences focused on engineering and information technology.
Upon successful completion of the program, Northrop Grumman will provide the mentees with multi-year partial scholarships to attend an accredited college or university of their choice, as well as summer internships or part-time

employment.
