Global Youth Peer Mentorship

unleash your full potential


As one of its kind, the Global Peer MentorSHIP program is designed to help you set high goals, overcome any obstacle, and unlock your full potential in the world. You will achieve all of that in an international peer group with other young people and with the guidance of an experienced mentor.


We will pair you with three other young people from around the world and an experienced mentor who will guide you through this thoughtfully designed 5-month-long online journey.

You will receive tools, knowledge, and a safe space to help you unleash your full potential. You will become more confident, set audacious goals, and have a space to discuss challenges in your life. Join us if you want to make the first steps toward your dreams and get out of your comfort zone!
