GMI bridges the gap between graduation and first career jobs for underrepresented young professionals from diverse communities. Through leveraging digital resources, mentorship, AI, and human connection, we are building a more equitable workforce of tomorrow’s leaders.
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.

Our Corporate Partners
Partnership with GMI goes beyond mere bullet points on a CSR report. It’s about empowering your employees to make a meaningful impact on the lives of young graduates and refugees with limited job prospects. By becoming mentors, your employees can actively contribute to your company’s Social Responsibility, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion goals, creating a positive ripple effect in the community.
Moreover, our mentorship program expands hiring pipelines, allowing your organizations to connect with talented individuals and potential future employees from diverse backgrounds. Join us in fostering positive change and building a stronger, more inclusive society together.
Our Youth Partners
GMI works with universities, nonprofits, and youth partners in 90+ countries, including 8 refugee camps. Our partners understand their local context and who is underrepresented within their communities. Armed with this local knowledge and on-the-ground experience, our partners nominate students who would most benefit from a GMI mentorship.
Our Mentorship Pathway
The GMI Mentorship program is defined by its structured and easy-to-follow curriculum. By ensuring that all students will receive the same content, we can guarantee measurable impact even as we scale. Whereas the success of traditional mentorships depend on the quality of the relationship between student and mentor, following the GMI program allows mentorship pairs to build affinity organically, and allows for true human connection that transcends difference.
