Washington Business Week’s Mentorship Program offers leadership development training and mentorship experience. Universities, colleges, and trade schools have seen first-hand the valuable skill sets their students have gained in just one week of collaborative, discovery learning.
As a mentor, you will gain valuable management insights, expand your industry knowledge, grow your leadership capacity, and ultimately explore career opportunities as you work alongside volunteers from leading industry giants such as Microsoft and Boeing. Serving as a mentor is not only rewarding for the high school youth being mentored, but it is also a great leadership development experience as you prepare to enter the workforce.
At Washington Business Week, high school students learn crucial life skills as they role-play as industry professionals, launch a company, and solve real-world challenges, all guided by you—the college mentor.
In just one week, college mentors learn to coach, influence, delegate, empower, and sharpen leadership skills in a way that our participants describe as life-changing. Guide students to work as a team, run a company, and make real-world decisions. You learn firsthand how to lead a diverse team to success. It is a hands-on leadership program like no other.
The Summer Sessions will include the following industry focuses:
• Advanced Business
• Clean Energy
This a paid internship opportunity for qualifying applicants. Priority will be given to college Juniors and Seniors along with individuals just starting their careers. Applicants must be 21 years of age or older and United States citizens. You will earn $300 (Virtual) and $400 (In-person) for the week of work plus invaluable leadership skills.
Applicants can work as many program weeks as they are available.
