Our Career Mentoring Program
The goal of our career mentoring program is to ensure that students are prepared for post-secondary education, trade schools, or entry-level professional success. These are some of the skills that we work on throughout the program:
- professional communication skills
- knowledge about the college application process
- knowledge about career fields
- soft-skills for career development
- self-efficacy for personal and professional problem-solving and goal-setting
Our career mentoring program is designed for underserved high school students in your community.
The program curriculum supports healthy decision-making in young people by providing them with professional adult mentors who can listen, guide, and provide meaningful opportunities.
At the end of the program, participating students will have the opportunity to apply for scholarships of up to $40,000 per student from an exclusive scholarship fund allocated to this program by the SFIG Foundation.
