Mentoring with Purpose
Education and engagement with caring adult role models can play an important role in increasing social capital and a sense of belonging, thereby driving economic mobility and reducing inequality. Read more about our mentoring efforts.
MetLife Foundation is a longstanding partner of Junior Achievement Worldwide, one of the world’s largest organizations working to inspire and empower young people to succeed in a global economy. MetLife volunteers in 21 countries helped prepare youth for employment and entrepreneurship.
In Latin America, MetLife Brazil partnered with nonprofit Atados on two virtual mentoring programs in which MetLife employees volunteered to help young people in vulnerable situations. During the first program, MetLife mentors and youth mentees spent two months exchanging letters that discussed the day-to-day life of working for a multinational corporation. In the second program, volunteers developed specific skills with young people through virtual meetings. The program also increased the young participants’ access to dental care.
