DESCRIPTION

The 2019 Inaugural Mentorship Conference features Ted Talk style presentations on the topic of mentorship by industry-leading professionals, followed by a panel discussion and career fair. Given the enormity and importance of mentorship, this event is designed for young adults from college students to young professionals striving for impactful success. The objective of the 2019 Inaugural Mentorship Conference is to shed light into the reason why mentorship is critical for success. Our goal is for each conference attendee to leave with the inspiration and determination to find and keep mentors throughout their professional journey. Educate4Humanity’s vision is for every young adult to have the supportive relationships they need to reach their potential and thrive professionally. Our mission is to accomplish this by raising awareness of the value of mentorship while bridging the gap between mentors and mentees.
