Our response to COVID-19: Free 1-on-1 online mentoring

School closed? We’re here for you with coaching to keep first-generation college students going.

As a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the founders of Forefront are offering free 30-minute virtual 1-on-1 coaching to college students.

There are countless mentors who stepped up for us in our journey. Now it’s our turn.

There's no doubt that the career strategies of just a few weeks ago have been upended - no more in-person networking or sit-down interviews is just the surface of the many changes occurring.

What should we do now? We will need to get creative.

Sign up for your free 1-on-1 online mentoring here: calendly.com/carmenai/student-mentoring-sessions.

We ask that you sign up if you truly need this resource, as our company is primarily focused on first-generation college students of color. Slots are on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you are not a student, share this message with your college student friends and family.

We are here for you and we will get through this together.

In warm spirits,

The Forefront team
