StreetWise Partners works with low-income individuals to overcome employment barriers, obtain better jobs and achieve economic self-sufficiency. We do so by creating deep mentoring relationships with volunteer business professionals.
StreetWise Partners provides a unique and high impact career mentoring program for highly motivated people who face multiple barriers to employment. StreetWise Partners encourages people to proactively think about their career, not just their next job, and provides the tools and support required to set and achieve specific career goals. StreetWise Partners programs help level the playing field for those who don't have the connections or resources that others do to advance their career.
Each mentee is individually matched with two volunteer mentors from professional backgrounds who provide them with guidance and personalized support in a structured, 13-week program. All programs take place at our Corporate Partner sites, which are hosted at: PwC, KPMG, Morgan Stanley, Marsh & McLennan Companies, and Deutsche Bank.
As a StreetWise Partners volunteer, you have the opportunity to use the skills and know-how that you already have to truly transform a person’s life. Partner with us to make a difference while building your own professional network and developing critical leadership, management, and coaching skills!
