VIP Mentors Matter
VIP Mentors are VERY INSPIRING PEOPLE (VIP) who share their knowledge, time, and financial resources with youth 10 - 21 years old. The valuable time mentors spend with our YOUTH matters to them. We offer youth with one-on-one, group, peer, face-to-face and virtual mentoring sessions and seminars, or a combination of these types of mentoring services and activities in a variety of academic subjects and industry areas to help youth to grow and succeed in life.
Our mission is to inspire, educate, and empower youth, especially at-risk youth, with the life skills needed for a successful career. We connect youth to a network of trusting mentors who can expand their career opportunities and encourage them to use their talents and skills to become financially successful.
