Career Ready: The Power of Mentorship

For many college students, graduation doesn’t guarantee a job. How do we help our students thrive after college? With over 10 years of expertise, we found the key to success often lies with a support system in the form of a mentor. Learn how our dedicated mentor system, which pairs students with a single mentor for four consecutive years, has produced scholars who are workforce-ready. A mentor, mentee & an HR specialist will speak to the impact mentorship can have in a young person’s success.
