• What We Do

    We offer life-changing work experiences, create strong mentor-mentee relationships, share professional specialists with our students & provides supports for success!

    Understanding Skills and Interests

    As soon as a student joins MENTEE, they receive a complete aptitude and interest assessment, along with career recommendations. With this, we begin the conversation about how to apply these skills and interests in real life. Students develop more confidence talking about these skills and interests with future mentors and employers.

    We work with school districts and other organizations throughout Chicago to identify students who lack the network and connections to find mentors and workspaces. If you're interested in becoming partner, please click here!

  • Who We Serve

    The student. Our sole focus is giving students the connections and opportunities that may not naturally filter out to them. We are not about skills training that serves businesses alone—we are about experience training to serve students.

     

    We aim to provide students plenty of options, valuable connections and ample experiences in order to give them the confidence to make their next big move after high school.

     

    MENTEE also provides personal support to the student through their mentor and cohort to help each student develop a larger vision of community, opportunity, and themselves.
