2020 Speed Mentoring Recap & Photos

AKWorld’s 2020 Speed Mentoring was extremely successful! Over 280 students participated, with student representation from 13 different schools and 195 students bused in from the Valley for the event. 80 mentors from over 30 different career fields were in attendance and excited to share their experiences and provide insight into options following graduation. After the mentoring sessions, students ate lunch while listening to the keynote panel share challenges they’ve overcome, what brings them joy in their careers, and the one piece of advice they wished they had known in high school.
