We’d Love Your Help.

We have an ambitious goal of impact at least 1000 mentees by 2022. Although ambitious, we have reason to believe that our work is necessary and, with recent events in the United States alone, has brought greater cause for us to help women, girls and audiences of immigrant and first-generation background tell their story. We are all worthy of equitable opportunities.

Working for SPEAK Mentorship means that you are a:

    Passionate
    Innovative
    Collaborative
    Results-Driven

individual looking to achieve our mission. We would not be possible without the commitment of time and skills of different individuals, and as part of the SPEAK Mentorship team, you will also be rewarded with working in such an environment with dedicated individuals all giving what they can to help move this mission forward.
