We are now accepting applications!

The Sikh Mentorship Program (SMP) is designed to connect Sikh professionals with Sikh students (16+) who are seeking guidance and direction academically or professionally. Over the years, we have made hundreds of connections. Alongside mentor-mentee matching, the SMP will also include workshops, panels, and networking events. Learn more about the expectations and responsibilities of mentors and mentees below.

Should I Apply to the Mentor-Mentee Matching Initiative?

You should apply as a mentee if you are a Sikh student (16+), graduate, or early professional looking for academic or professional advice.

You should apply as a mentor if you are a working professional looking to give back to the community and support the next generation of Sikhs.
