WAVE

 

This is not your typical mentorship program.

WAVE connects young women (Advisees) aged 15-22 years old with professionals (Advisors) in tech as part of a 1:1 Advisor program. The goals are simple:

  • Exposure - Expose young women and non-binary students to a variety of careers powered by tech

  • Skills - Arm them with practical skills for their first job

  • Network - Help them build their first network
