innovative online mentoring with growth measurement

Revolutionizing Mentoring

Trusted and used by parents, students, educators, and communities to improve outcomes for Black, Brown, and diverse youth.

Breaking Down Barriers

We’re on a mission to break down barriers and open doors for Black and Brown youth. We know these communities are often overlooked and underserved, so we’re dedicated to providing culturally relevant mentoring that can truly make a difference. With our innovative platform, students can connect with the stories of various mentors and engage in meaningful learning experiences to help them unlock their full potential. We see a future where every young person has access to the guidance and support they need to thrive, and we’re working to make it a reality.

Why Mentoring

Black and Brown youth have an uphill battle to success that begins long before they reach adulthood.

They often face barriers that can hinder growth and development, such as a lack of access to relatable role models and resources. Traditional 1:1 mentoring models fail to scale to every learner, from young to older. This is where WAM Academy comes in—our stories are designed to reach the unreachable online first, to improve outcomes offline. Our innovative mentoring platform and consulting services provide a solution for overlooked and misunderstood students. 

Our youth have unique experiences that require mentors who understand them and can relate to their struggles. With WAM Academy, we provide a safe and supportive environment where students can receive the guidance and mentorship they deserve. Let’s bridge the mentoring gap together and create a brighter future for the next generation.
