There’s no doubt that one of the silver linings to come out of the pandemic was the launch of our Mentorship Program. COVID-19 meant going virtual in a way we never had before, and going virtual opened up so many new possibilities for our program.
Our first Mentors were a pair of friends / Digital Marketing experts from Google and Polestar. After just a few weeks, it became apparent to everyone, just how valuable and rewarding the experience was to all those involved. Our next ambition was to scale up the program a bit, and over the next few months we brought on Mentors from YouTube, Facebook, Amazon, Pinterest, AutoDesk, Morgan Stanley and so many other amazing companies with employees based all around the world.
We love the Mentorship program because not only does it mean our students are getting professional level technical support, it also helps develop interpersonal skills, increases confidence and professionalism and exposes our students to an entire world they hadn’t previously had access to.
So with that said, it is with great excitement that we are now putting out a Call for Applications for more Mentors to join Uncommon.org and work one on one with a student in Zimbabwe.
