Mentorship Blossoms Into Successful Leadership

To pass conservatism on to the next generation, we need experienced leaders in the public and private sector to start developing mentorships with the young conservatives in their lives.

Mentor Matches
This signature piece of the Forge Mentorship Academy matches each student with a high-caliber mentor of strong character and professional achievement. We believe this “friendship with a vision” fosters growth at every level–professional, personal, and spiritual.  Every mentor match is individually crafted to ensure student and mentor share vocational interests and aspirations. Throughout this unique mentoring relationship, mentors commit to a minimum of six conversations, leading discussions of two recommended resources, and inviting the student to one career shadowing experience.
