Become a Mentor — Share your knowledge.
1 in 3 young people will grow up without having a mentor – leaving them disconnected from a critical resource to help with guidance and success. Furthermore, youth in a mentor program are 46% less likely to use drugs and 27% less likely to use alcohol. Nonetheless, serving as a mentor will provide the opportunity to help youth reach their entrepreneurial and career goals. Lastly, being a mentor will help you learn new things about yourself.
Advisory Board — Support a local high school.
Connecting business with education can create lasting changes in your community. Furthermore, our resource committees (advisory boards) lets you utilize your talents to help a high school of your choosing. The resource committees bring together people passionate about advocacy, event planning, fundraising, internships, and marketing. Through your work, you help garner resources for the school. Lastly, being on the committee will help you stretch your knowledge and skills.
Job Shadowing — One-day education opportunities.
We encourage you to host young entrepreneurs and innovators at your business. Furthermore, job shadows are a one-day commitment to share your industry.

Also, it’s a chance for your employees to learn from the next generation of leaders in the industry.
