StreetWise Partners is a non-profit organization with a mission to harness the mentoring resources of the private sector to reduce unemployment within disadvantaged communities of New York City and Washington, D.C. StreetWise Partners pairs business professionals with mentees who are unemployed/underemployed in order to provide them with the skills, resources, and access to networks they need to secure and maintain employment. CoreNet has been participating in StreetWise events since 2016 and members have always reported back positive, rewarding experiences and praised Streetwise’s structure to help so many mentees in their careers.
The committee is looking for volunteers to help mentees by conducting 3 mock interviews and providing feedback, so the mentees leave prepared to ace their next job interview. *This event is open to all members.*
