National Mentoring Project

Scope of Work:

MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership (in partnership with America’s Center for Promise and the Schultz Family Foundation) set out to connect young people, specifically who are out of school and work, with a well trained community-based mentor, a job, and workplace-based mentor.

The overall collaboration will include several youth focused organizations in 5 markets: Seattle, Chicago, Washington D.C., Baltimore, and Atlanta. The goal being to connect 400+ young people with sustainable and growing entry level job opportunities. Teaming these career-going young people with two well trained mentors will promote continuous and accessible support.

Each program participant was supported with in-person training and online curriculum, with part of the overall goal being, to develop a scalable turnkey youth employment solution for young people nationally, leveraging community-based and workplace mentorship to encourage holistic and sustainable support.

My Role!

During my 6-month stint consulting on this expansive project I played a dominant role in the creation and development of the online course curriculum that all community-based mentors, mentees, and workplace mentors would leverage to advance their development and relationships beyond the initial in-person training. In addition, I had the pleasure to execute several in-person mentor and mentee training in the Atlanta and Chicago markets.
