When & Where
America Needs You (ANY)
ANY fights for economic mobility for ambitious, first-generation college students. We do this by providing transformative mentorship and intensive career development.
The ANY Fellows Program is an intensive two-year program for high-achieving, low-income, first-generation college students. The program has four components:
Intensive Career Development: ANY follows a best in class curriculum focused on professional skills, career exploration, college completion, and personal growth. The program provides 28 full-day workshops over the course of two years.
One-on-One Mentorship: Each student (Fellow) is matched one-on-one with a mentor (Mentor Coach). These pairs complete 220 hours of mentoring over two years. Mentor Coaches provide industry insight and connections as well as help Fellows set goals and stay on track academically and professionally.
Robust Networks: Fellows interact with thousands of diverse professionals through workshops, Career Days (on-site employer visits), and internship/job opportunities at companies. These opportunities allow Fellows to grow their professional, academic, and social networks.
Holistic Support: ANY supports Fellows in overcoming personal and academic challenges, such as transfer support for Fellows enrolled in community college. The program also provides up to $2,000 in grants and in-kind contributions over the two years, including business attire.
