As we head into 2019, we want to take a moment to thank all our mentors!
In 1993, Skills for Change launched its first mentoring program to support internationally-educated professionals facing multiple barriers to employment. Every year since then, we have continued to deliver mentoring services to hundreds of new immigrants who have come through our doors.
What guides us in our work is seeing the importance and the impact of mentorship for newcomers who are navigating a new cultural and economic landscape, often without any professional network.
Also, what guides us in our mentoring work seeing a unique talent, diverse skill sets, accomplishments, and contributions that new immigrants bring to our communities.
We are proud to have matched thousands of meaningful mentor-mentee relationships over the past many years, and to be a part of many successful mentoring stories!
