Mentoring Matters! We appreciate mentors of all backgrounds (races, genders, religions, sexual orientations...). Mentoring our youth has never been more important than it is today. College-aged Black Americans report that some of the biggest obstacles they face when beginning their careers include a lack of support systems to help navigate the ever-winding road to career satisfaction and an inability to connect with role models in their fields. Your guidance can make all the difference in the lives of our driven and talented young people.

You can help inspire the future generation of Black American leaders! Join our community and apply to be a Lantern Network Mentor today!  Apply here: The Lantern Network Mentor Application
