Good mentorship changes lives. It makes leaders. It builds inner strength in a young person that will be vital for her or his success. Mentoring increases minority student academic achievement as well as enrollment and retention. Underrepresented students in college programs who get good mentorship report that mentoring is the single most crucial factor of their success after college.

But, good mentorship takes people who are willing to be good mentors.

The Helping Project is actively seeking professionals in STEM fields who want to guide young adults who have been historically underrepresented in STEM professions.

If I hadn't had mentors, I wouldn't be here today. I'm a product of great mentoring, great coaching. Coaches or mentors are very important.
