At our training center in Dzodze, Ghana, we are helping underprivileged young people become passionate professionals. Atlassian has been our main sponsor so far and has provided most of our mentors.

As we grow, we need more remote mentors and support from major tech companies, and we've found LinkedIn to be the best place to connect with their employees. Therefore, we're looking for volunteers to spend 2 hours per week on LinkedIn reaching out and inviting potential mentors to join us.

Mission Statement

Mentors Without Borders is helping underprivileged young people from Africa become passionate professionals by connecting them with employees from big tech companies. We believe that poverty can be eliminated when people love their work, especially in modern fields.

Description

Since 2020, we have connected more than 500 underprivileged students from our partner NGOs with mentors, and many of our alumni have started successful careers in fields such as Programming, Graphic Design, Digital Marketing, Project Management, Customer Support, and others.

At the end of 2023, we established a training center in Dzodze, Ghana, with the support of the Atlassian Foundation. This initiative will enable hundreds of underprivileged students annually to learn 21st-century skills from our remote mentors, and we plan to open more training centers across Africa as we get more support from our partner companies.
