We have a vision.
Every college student, refugee, and early career candidates deserves a champion. One person to guide them as they navigate the transition to their first career. Through a structured, online, one-to-one mentorship with a business professional, we are connecting mentees to employment, transforming communities, and building a brighter tomorrow.
Bridging the gap between graduation and employment
Students everywhere struggle to land their first meaningful job. Our program begins where many educational support programs end: the transition window between college to career. Together, we are opening doors for the next generation of young professionals to succeed.
