GLOBAL MENTORSHIP INITIATIVE

Image_202006101633

Global Mentorship Initiative is a non-profit 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. We are not seeking funding or sponsorship.

We partner with universities in the US, South Africa, Jamaica, and Sri Lanka using a one to one 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 has added 250 students for new mentorships and we would be very glad if you could mentor one of them!
