Global Mentorship Initiative is a non-profit organization that provides guidance and business skills to college students through a structured online mentorship. GMI was created from the Rockefeller Foundation’s Digital Jobs Initiative to help prepare students for their first career job and enabling you to be a mentor without a significant time commitment.

GMI has 3,800 students and mentors in the program and partners with 33 colleges and youth associations that provide students in 67 countries including eight refugee camps. GMI is adding 500 new students for mentorship in the next 90 days, and we need more mentors!

We make it easy for you to be a great mentor and GMI provides everything you need to guide your student. You don't need to be an expert, just follow the mentor guide, and add your own personal experience.
