Empower the Next Generation of Social Entrepreneurs
As a Y&Y mentor, you'll work with exceptional young people to maximize their impact while solve social problems around the world.
Who are Y&Y mentors?
Y&Y Mentors are professionals with extensive experience at a successful corporation or start-up. They come from diverse fields, from business strategy and finance to marketing and operations among others. However, they have one thing in common: they want to help drive social change. Mentors use their skills and insights from the business world to help exceptional young people solve social issues around the world.
How does it work?
Y&Y Mentors are paired with a young social entrepreneur whose needs best match their skills. Their mentee could be building a social business anywhere in the world, addressing issues from poverty to gender inequality. In this challenging and dynamic environment, mentors encourage Fellows to reach their full potential and support them as they build, strengthen, or expand their venture.
What’s the impact of Y&Y mentors?
Mentor input is crucial to our Fellows’ social business development and growth. As a Y&Y mentor you will be amazed by the difference you are able to make in just two hours. From helping an entrepreneur running a literacy program reach more children to improving the marketing of a jewelry company employing women in a refugee camp, Y&Y Mentors bring visions to life while using their skills to make the world a better place.
