Who we are
The Mentor Project is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit. Our mentors are experts in science, technology, engineering, the arts, mathematics, business, and law. From developing a patent on how to use credit cards on the Internet to insights on space exploration and astronomy, to titans of industry and world-class technologists, TMP mentors share their skills and knowledge to inspire and guide their mentees.

What we do
Our mentors work one-on-one in classrooms, virtually, on podcasts, on television, and in collaborative hackathons. Learning is fun yet challenging with patenting competitions and research.  Mentees can view videos on topics from our extensive content library, ask questions via our "Ask a Mentor" program, get connected with a 1:1 mentor, and join teams to work with other mentor groups.  Spanning the globe, our mentor-led projects provide mentees the opportunity to collaborate worldwide.  

Why we do it
We've discovered there is a large community of educators, scientists, engineers, technology experts, and corporate professionals who have thought about mentoring but never knew where to start. The Mentor Project fills that gap by inviting the very best and brightest to a place where they leave an indelible legacy for generations to come. Perhaps the greatest benefit is that 89% of mentees continue to mentor themselves, permitting a lasting chain of inspiration and learning.
