An extraordinary way to connect job seekers with successful professionals who can provide support and guidance of their industry and area of expertise.

We offer an exciting mentorship program that serves as a platform for young adults to take the next big step in their careers. Participants in the program go through a rigorous selection and placement process, resulting in a group of our community’s most elite college students. The selected students receive internship placements, advice and coaching from industry leaders, along with an SBH leadership building program.
