What does mentorship mean to you? None of us would be where we are today without the support and inspiration of caring adults who helped us find the right path. Euclid Mentoring gives you the opportunity to show a young adult, job seeker or a student all that’s possible for their education, career and future.
Euclid Mentoring also provides a unique opportunity not only for disconnected young adults but also for volunteers. Mentoring helps empower people to help address the opportunity divide that exists in many communities.
You’ll Be in Good Company
By mentoring a student, you’ll join a community of advocates and supporters from all different fields and stages of their careers — a software engineer straight out of college, a marketing executive managing her own team, even a CEO running an entire company. The program is built on close relationships and mutual support.
