WHAT IF WE COULD INSPIRE STUDENTS TO TAKE CONTROL OF THEIR FUTURE?
At 100Mentors, we want to give students a chance to create a positive future. Using an online platform, we connect students from all over the world with the brightest academics, including professors at Harvard and Cambridge Universities, top scientists at NASA and talented musicians all over the world. This allows students to discover the career path that is right for them, which will ultimately improve their future. It empowers students to be proactive participants in their learning journey, connects today’s lesson plan to tomorrow’s real experiences, and inspires young minds to cultivate their future selves. In a world where the only constant is change, students need to be able to reinvent themselves and the communities around them.
Through the platform, educators set topics based on teaching plans. Students ask questions – often starting with ‘why’ – for professionals to respond to them. We have more than 22,000 students in 420 schools across 17 countries asking questions. To respond, we have 400+ mentors, 300+ universities and 500+ companies within our network acting as role models. We also offer live sessions, where we directly connect the students and mentors so that the students can have the undivided attention of a mentor if they are particularly interested in that subject matter.
FUNDING WOULD ALLOW US TO…
Funding will help us meet our goal of reaching one million students in the next three years. It will help us reduce the opportunity gap by increasing the percentage of underprivileged classrooms from 50% to 95%, including those from remote regions and disadvantaged backgrounds.
