GMI provides guidance and business skills to underserved students around the world through a short-term, online mentorship. GMI was created from the Rockefeller Foundation’s Digital Jobs Initiative to prepare students for their first career job using a training model that makes it easy for mentors to guide their students without a significant time commitment. We partner with 20 universities and youth organizations in the US and around the world with a mentorship program that includes 14 one-hour structured online sessions designed to provide real value to the student as they prepare for their job search. Microsoft partners with GMI on this effort and we have over 100 mentors from MS this year. We make it easy for you to be a great mentor and GMI provides everything you need to guide your student. You don't need to be an expert, just follow the mentor guide, and add your own personal experience. You can learn more and sign up to be a mentor anytime here: https://globalmentorship.org/microsoft
Your contribution goes directly to helping underserved students around the world get the jobs skills needed to launch their career and support their family. A donation of $250 will support one student for the full mentorship training program and provide an opportunity for job interviews after completing their mentorship.
GMI has a special partnership with Southern New Hampshire University to provide mentors for students living in eight refugee camps across Africa and Lebanon. Over 150 refugees have been matched with mentors in the last 12 months. GMI mentors help prepare these students for jobs and this opportunity can be their first step to a better life for their families.
