America Needs You fights for economic mobility for ambitious, first generation college students. We do this by providing transformative mentorship and intensive career development. Our campus-based Fellows Program is a two-year, intensive mentoring and professional training program where first-generation students ("Fellows") are paired with young professional volunteers. We operate in California, Illinois, New Jersey, and New York.

Mentor Coach Volunteers develop a one-on-one mentoring relationship with a low-income, first-generation college student (Fellow), working with them at 18 professional development workshops to cultivate their strengths, interests, and passions into successful careers. Mentor Coaches prepare students for selective internships through a structured career development curriculum.

Time commitment: 1-2 Saturdays per month for 2 years

Benefits of Volunteering:

  • Develop aone-on-one mentoring relationship with your Fellow and help them achieve their career ambitions
  • Build your own personal network as you work closely with highly accomplished professionals from a variety of industries
  • Gain access to exclusive professional development and social events
  • Serve as a role model and resource for your class of Mentor Coach/Fellow pairs
