38 U.S. Embassy alumni mentors and 40 Institute of Technical Education (ITE) student mentees are participating in the 2019 U.S. Embassy-ITE Alumni Mentoring Program. The program, on its seventh cycle, provides mentoring to youth while showcasing the innovation and resilience of American businesses. All participants took part in energizer activities and broke into small groups to share their journeys, challenges, and triumphs. Through storytelling and role-playing, they discussed ways to turn challenges and problems into opportunities and possibilities.
Over the next few months, they will visit American companies to learn about their corporate values, career opportunities, and skills aimed at fostering personal and professional growth.
