Description

America Needs You fights for economic mobility for ambitious, first generation college students. We do this by providing transformative mentorship and intensive career development. Our flagship Fellows Program is a two-year, intensive mentoring and professional training program where first-generation students ("Fellows") are paired with young professional volunteers. We operate in Illinois, New Jersey and New York.


Mentor Coach Volunteers develop a one-on-one mentoring relationship with a low-income, first-generation college student (Fellow), working with them at 28 professional development workshops to cultivate their strengths, interests, and passions into successful careers. Mentor Coaches prepare students for selective internships through a structured career development curriculum.


Time commitment: 1-2 Saturdays per month for 2 years

  • Develop a one-on-one mentoring relationship with your Fellow and help them achieve their career ambitions
