GLOBAL MENTORSHIP INITIATIVE

Image_202006101633

Global Mentorship Initiative is a nonprofit organization that provides guidance and business skills to underserved college students through online mentorship. GMI was created from the Rockefeller Foundation’s Digital Jobs Initiative to help prepare students for their first career job using a training model that makes it easy to be a great mentor without a significant time commitment.

GMI makes it easy to be a great mentor and we're looking for people like you who will make a difference for an underserved student just starting out. You don’t need to be an expert, just follow the GMI mentor guide, and add your own personal experience.

We partner with universities in the US and around the world with a mentorship program that includes 14 one-hour structured online sessions designed to provide real value to the student as they prepare for their job search.

GMI partners with Southern New Hampshire University’s Global Education Movement (GEM). Together we are bringing mentorships and job search preparation to students living in refugee camps in Africa and the Middle East affected by crisis and forced displacement.

Mentor candidates should be at least 25 years old and have a BA/BS in their chosen field. You may select a specific college or student location if you have a preference. Join us, you can do this!
