Network Up Career Mentor (short-term mentoring)

Save to Favorites



Network Up is a short-term mentoring program offered by Britepaths and the Financial Empowerment Center at South County that matches under- or un-employed men or women with a volunteer mentor. Mentors and mentees meet two to five times for a conversation focused on helping the mentee create or expand his/her professional network; and establish a career strategy and job search plan. We especially need mentors who work or have worked in the fields of technology/IT, nonprofits and accounting, but we welcome professionals in all fields in Northern Virginia/DMV. This has traditionally been an in-person activity, but mentors and mentees are meeting via phone and zoom or other virtual platforms while Covid-19 protocols are in place.

Mentors provide a wealth of experience, knowledge, and networking connections to help mentees land - and succeed in - the right job for them!

Are You Eligible to be a Mentor? You Must Be:

  • An established professional living in the Northern Virginia area
  • Looking for an opportunity to become involved in your community
  • Interested in helping people develop their professional goals and networking connections
  • Willing to use your expertise and knowledge to help someone advance their career
  • Network Up is NOT a job placement program. Rather, it is a workforce development opportunity designed to help someone achieve their career goals.
