Mentorships with the City of San Diego
Mentees will participate in four weeks of part-time work-readiness training with Connect2Careers, after which they will be assessed for transit pass assistance and provided professional clothing through a partnership with the Gap Foundation. After training, mentees will join a City of San Diego employee for a 150-hour mentorship experience—typically over the course of 5-10 weeks.
