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
How it Works
Our algorithm connects young women and non-binary students to professionals across a range of roles, companies, and industries.
Easy Time Commitment
Each pair meets once a month for one hour at the Advisor’s office or through video calls over a span of three months.
Each Advisor and Advisee commits to a year in the program, rotating to a new match every 3 months (with a few breaks throughout).
We guide your sessions on our platform with content guides— no awkward silences here.
