StreetWise Partners’ goal is to leverage mentorship to increase employment opportunities for adults from overlooked and under-resourced communities within New York, Washington, D.C. and Detroit.
The program annually serves 400 mentees through the support of 50+ corporations and 1,500 volunteers. Since the organization's inception in 1997, StreetWise Partners has transformed the lives of 7,000 job seekers through the support of 12,000 volunteers.
Streetwise introduce mentees to an exclusive network of the best and brightest volunteers who offer knowledge, expertise, contacts, and opportunities to jumpstart a career. Mentees and mentors both receive opportunities to attend events outside of program to grow their professional networks and continue their development.
StreetWise is powered by the support, dedication, and knowledge of more than 1,500 annual volunteers. There are many different ways to volunteer, whether you’re looking to spend a small amount of time to have a big impact, or looking for a longer term commitment.
