Mentors are leaders within their professions and community role models. They are committed to providing a rewarding mentorship experience and open to developing relationships to last a lifetime.
Our careful matching process pairs each mentee's career interests and life experiences with a mentor that can guide them on a professional, educational and personal level.
Mentees work as apprentices at their mentor’s workplace. Hands on learning enables each mentee to explore their career interests, while gaining valuable lessons in responsibility and relationships.
To enhance a well-rounded experience transcending the workplace, mentees attend life skills workshops cover topics such as budgeting money, business attire, and personal well being.
