Mentees are Concept high school students and graduates, who are part of the FIRM program. Through FIRM, mentees grow their workplace knowledge through hands-on experience, collaborating with and learning from experienced professionals in their fields of interest.
Future Institute cares about their Concept graduates, who are aspiring, enthusiastic, bright, driven professionals, by offering them professional experience and a chance to improve their lives.
To get started, all aspiring mentees need to do is register through the Future Institute FIRM portal. Then, Future Institute pairs mentees with mentors who will help them acquire insight into the mentee’s area of interest. Mentors, of course, are seasoned professionals who volunteer their time and expertise to share their vocational lessons and career advice with such ambitious young adults.
Committed mentees receive an annual scholarship, which is applied to college-related expenses. Those Concept mentees who are still in high school have scholarship dollars that accrue and are applied to their future college-related expenses. Scholarship amounts depend on the mentee’s program level of involvement. The levels are: Gold, Silver, Bronze.
