Share your wisdom and experience with a motivated young adult! Our students (ages 18-25) enter the Future Link program through a 15-week self-advocacy and career development seminar. They role-play, discuss, and present on topics including professionalism, understanding the needs of an organization, identifying their strengths, how to share those strengths with others, seeking help, building a network, and presenting their professional selves on paper, online, and in person.
Mentoring starts after the seminar and requires a one year commitment, although many mentorships continue much longer. Meeting weekly at a mutually convenient time and location (in-person or a hybrid approach), you will focus on education and career goals with your mentee. Through your conversations, you will help our students avoid wasting time, money, and effort in the pursuit of a career pathway.
Mentors must be 30+ years of age, live or work in Montgomery Country, Maryland and have at least five years’ work experience in their career field.
We provide free training and ongoing support during your mentorship. Find our online application at: https://futurelinkmd.org/mentor-application/
