During these uncertain times, how can we help?

Only 11% of low-income, first-generation college students are expected to earn bachelor’s degrees. You can help America Needs You (ANY) change this.
ANY fights for economic mobility for ambitious, first generation college students. We do this by providing a two-year, intensive mentoring and professional training program where first-generation students ("Fellows") are paired with young professional volunteers. We serve over 600 students and over 1,000 volunteers in California, Illinois, New Jersey, and New York.
As a volunteer Mentor Coach, you will work one-on-one with one of our Fellows through their entire two-year journey through our program, attending career development workshops and bringing our best-in-class curriculum to life with your real world experiences and industry insight. Workshops take place on Saturdays and include trainings by our expert staff, hands-on activities to practice new skills, panels and presentations, leadership opportunities and group discussions.
Benefits of Volunteering:
Our program for the incoming 2020 cohort of Fellows and Mentor Coaches will begin in late summer. Workshops are typically in-person, but may be held virtually due to COVID-19. We will resume in person meetings as soon as it safe to do so.
