UPKEY is recruiting 500 Mentors for the Fall 2020 Virtual Internship Program (VIP) beginning October 5th. During these troubling times, many undergraduate students have lost their internships. Upkey is providing 1,000 students the opportunity to learn some valuable transferable business skills from early to mid-level career business professionals so that the future of our workforce comes out of this crisis more prepared to launch their professional journeys.

One important piece lacking from this internship experience is a work "buddy" who can be a mentor and help them along their journey. If you are willing and able to be a buddy through this 8 week program in October & November, please fill out the form!

**We provide an optional complementary training through Journeous.

The project scope includes Fall 2020 Program Mentorship Details

Start Date : 5th October, 2020

Duration: 6 weeks

Time Commitment Required: 1-2 hours per week

Mission Statement

Education and career development software service. Upkey is a comprehensive toolbox built to fundamentally change the way students think about their careers.

Description

Helping the Underdog Become the Top Dog With the right tools, knowledge and information, any student can succeed in today’s modern world. We make it happen!
Seventeen years ago, I was a foreigner lost in the middle of a busy airport in Chicago. On that day, I had a chance encounter with the person who would ultimately become my mentor and change my life forever. I want everyone to have the same chance to succeed that I did - and that’s why I started Upkey: to even the odds.
Upkey is the world’s first - and only - student career incubator.
We provide high school seniors and college students with fun, interesting, and engaging learning tracks to help them cultivate a marketable professional image, show off their grit and tenacity, and emphasize their potential. We’re here to level the playing field. If you share our vision for a more diverse, inclusive world where opportunities aren’t just limited to the privileged and every young person gets a chance to shine, we want to hear from you.


Always looking forward,
Amir Badr, Founder & CEO
