Welcome Mentors



Engaging Mentors Globally

We provide an important bridge between the needs of industry and education
by pairing students with business leaders from around the world who act as
personal mentors in a safe, virtually-mentored environment.



Authentic Student Projects

Mentored Pathways provides an opportunity for students to tackle real industry
issues. We invite you to browse the following project areas to learn more about the
impact Mentored Pathways makes for students around the world.

Do you have what it takes to be a great mentor?

Do you:

  • Follow through with what you commit to doing?
  • Have an interest in helping shape future generations of leaders?
  • Effectively communicate in writing?
  • Have reliable access to the Internet?
  • Enjoy working with youth?

If you answered “yes” to the above questions, then you have what it takes to be an effective Mentored Pathways mentor. Our mentors are employees of Mentored Pathways sponsor companies and organizations and:

  • Make communicating with students a priority by sending a minimum of two project focused messages per week to their mentee(s) through the secure message area on Mentored Pathways's website
  • Draw out the interests and natural abilities of their mentees and allow them to look at who they are from a fresh and professional perspective
  • Convey hope about the future to their students
  • Are excellent problem solvers and help their students learn to overcome obstacles
  • Work closely with the teacher to maximize the progress their student is making on the project and as a person
  • Share the impact of the program on themselves as professionals and encourage coworkers to participate.
