Established in 2020, the Strive Mentorship Program aims to foster meaningful connections between college students, with a special emphasis for those enrolled in Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and other Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs), with experienced industry professionals in the following sectors:
The interactive program will allow mentees and mentors to discuss a range of topics, from career and professional goals, experiences in the workplace, building their leadership skills, to identifying strengths and weaknesses. Through facilitated sessions, both mentors and mentees will have a chance to cultivate strong relationships, ultimately providing the opportunity to learn and grow.
Our team will prioritize mentee & mentor matches based on interests and commitment-level. Please be advised that your application does not guarantee your participation. We will send confirmations in early May.
Youth Opportunity and Access to Sport: We acknowledge that people come together in the celebration of human achievement and the communities that Sport fosters. We aim to encourage underserved communities to partake in all that sports have to offer, recognizing that the barriers (whether it be financial, social, or other resources) can be high and access can be limiting.
Youth Access to Mentorship: Professional mentorship is meant to create equitable economic outcomes for communities of color. Access can come from having a network that can help open doors, having information to develop skills and learn about new career paths, and having a safe space to ask questions. Our goal is to bolster the resources we can provide to BIPOC youth (A13-25), including an expanded network, access to early career development, and or scholarship access.
