Mentoring Opportunities

Get Involved - Mentoring

Empower local high school students for success by mentoring three to four students in our structured, evidence-based Workforce Prep program. Mentors are trained and provided in-class staff support at every mentoring session (one morning hour, one day per week, 20 weeks, October through May in Detroit, Harper Woods, Southfield, Pontiac, Warren, or Sterling Heights).

Other Opportunities

Workforce Prep Networking Mixer

Mixers are part of our new Workforce Prep program. At each Mixer, students will practice and refine their networking skills while learning about various careers by introducing themselves to you and asking about your career.

As a volunteer, you will help students by asking them about their career interests and goals, talking about your career, and giving them constructive feedback. When you arrive, you will receive coaching from our team and a “cheat sheet” of questions and conversation starters.

Sign up:

Friday, September 20 at 9:25 a.m. to 10:55 a.m. (Harper Woods High School – I-94 and Vernier/8 Mile):

Contact Kimberly Austin for more information at 586-698-4078 or .
