When & Where
America Needs You
America Needs You fights for economic mobility for ambitious, low-income college students. We do this by providing intensive career development, mentorship, and professional networks to enable students to realize their academic and career aspirations.
Through the Fellows Program and Career Development Program, America Needs You is making a difference for low-income college students.
The Fellows Program is an intensive program for high-achieving, low-income, first-generation college students. The two-year program offers students (Fellows) career development workshops, access to internships, and professional development grants. All Fellows are matched one-on-one with a successful and motivated professional “Mentor Coach” dedicated to their personal and professional growth. Mentor Coaches and Fellows work together to cultivate the Fellows’ strengths and interests, and direct them into successful careers.
