“I mentored a student from Senegal and was very impressed by the tools and resources provided by GMI throughout the 14 week program. I was able to find an hour each week and saw my mentee progress and land job interviews.”
-Mary Bonneaud Lagarde, Think Human Foundation

Mentor a Graduating Refugee to Help Them Find Work
