Global Youth Peer Mentorship

unleash your full potential


A one of its kind global youth MentorSHIP program for 15 to 19-year-olds designed to help you set your goals high, overcome any obstacles, and unlock your full potential in the world. All of that in an international peer group of other young people and with the guidance of an experienced mentor.


Once accepted, we will pair you with three other young people from all around the world and an experienced mentor who will guide you through this thoughtfully designed online journey.

During the five-month journey, you will receive tools, knowledge, and a safe space to help you unleash your full potential.
