BBPA National Mentorship Program

Mentorship – Key to Success

The BBPA National Mentorship Program is intended for youth 16 to 29 and entrepreneurs of any age. Our program has three mentorship components to address the needs of Black youth and entrepreneurs at every life stage.

The Power of Mentoring is for mentees who are thinking about what they should do in the future. Participants will be placed in a virtual mentorship group where they’ll gain:

  • An understanding of the practical job skills required to meet labour market demands
  • Develop an awareness of the future of work
  • Learn how to access opportunities aligned to your academic, career and life goals

These 90-minute networking and skill-building sessions include career conversations plus practical activities focused on networking, communications, goal setting, and personal branding.

One of the best ways mentees can start their careers is to develop strong relationships with mentors who are willing to share their skills, expertise and network with them. We hand-select established professionals who can give mentees advice on everything from improving their resume, starting their job search, and preparing for an interview. Having access to a knowledgeable and experienced mentor, allows mentees to move forward professionally faster than they would on your own.

Business owners are always looking for ways to grow and expand their operations. Learning from a mentor could be the key to future entrepreneurial success. Mentors who have gone through similar experiences can help businesses focus on what’s important to scale. They also provide much needed advice, support and encouragement.
