Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Immigrant, refugee and low-income students face multiple challenges beyond the typical ones the average teen faces. Housing issues, neighborhood & school crime and violence. language barriers, staying in school, post-secondary options, role models, guidance, information, and so much more. MENTEE does all it can to pull down barriers, open up doors for experiences, build confidence in themselves as they are and all they bring and connections to their new communities and the broader society. MENTEE levels the playing field and offering training so the students see inside themselves the potential for success, while providing the guidance and feedback they need to achieve it.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

MENTEE aims to keep our students in school, give our mentees the supports they need, including mental health support through our partner, and provide the network, feedback and guidance they need to achieve their dreams.

First, MENTEE is a UN SDG partner organization, so we work with other global NGOs to accomplish our SDG goals and theirs. MENTEE enlists the global community and brings in resources from those who want to give back so we can provide the best possible training and support while also fueling sharing and connecting between our immigrant, refugee and low-income youth and the broader community.

Currently MENTEE is only limited by funding. We look forward to further investment to enlarge our capacity and scale our programming.

MENTEE has an outstanding mentoring program, a cross-sector job shadowing program, professional training workshops, legal supports, mental health supports, MENTEE Magazine so students can share their experiences for larger impact and gain their voice, and we're currently building a scholarship piece and community supports.

UPDATE: this program is moving virtual & global and launching January 2021.
