How It Works

Benefits for Littles

Workplace Mentoring introduces children to jobs at an early age, giving them an opportunity to learn about the corporate world first-hand. Through relationships with "Corporate Bigs", Littles experience what it means to work for a corporation and the educational requirements needed to achieve this professional success. The value is the same: children are exposed to professional environments, new career paths and life goals are introduced, and lives are truly changed.
