Thank you for being a wonderful supporter of StreetWise Partners. You are part of a strong community of 25,000 mentees and mentors, and together, we are advancing economic equity and facilitating access to opportunity. You have helped to open doors, launch careers, and ensure economic mobility for our job seekers and their families.
We are proud of what we have accomplished together, but there is still so much more to be done.
Every day, I meet countless young adults, immigrants, and refugees who are talented, motivated and capable but have been completely locked out of professional careers because of systemic barriers, lack of access to role models and limited professional networks.
Still to this day, 80% of individuals find job opportunities through networking which continues the cycle of inequity. Where a person grows up, goes to school and whether their parents are college educated gives them 12x the advantage in accessing opportunity. However, with your help, we can prepare and connect talented young people and immigrants to the job market through our proven mentoring program.
Our organization is impactful because of donors like you. We are 100% privately funded, and every dollar raised from individuals goes towards programmatic success. A generous donation will help us launch 2000 careers by 2026. That equates to $80M in first year cumulative wages.
Please give the gift of mentorship this holiday season and help our job seekers be greater than they have ever imagined!
