GENYOUth CEO Alexis Glick and New York Giants running back Rashad Jennings sat down recently to talk with TheStreet about how business leaders and mentors help empower students to create change.
No entrepreneur is an island. Just ask anyone who’s ever succeeded in business, including philanthropic and global business icon, Warren Buffett. As a great benefactor and mentor to so many, Buffett generously invited AdCap’s first class of grant-winning students out to his Berkshire Hathaway office in 2013 for a tour and some life-changing life lessons. This remarkable experience forever impacted our students and set the course for what would flourish and become our AdCap program.
Our CEO, Alexis, recently appeared on TheStreet.com to talk about how mentoring is instrumental to student success. Alexis was joined by Giants running back, Rashad Jennings, who started a Foundation in his name dedicated to mentoring young people.
Mentoring is a fundamental piece of AdCap, which exists because of tremendous partners like SAP and Domino’s, whose employees believe in the power of a mentor to help a student work through and execute and idea, see it through to fruition and gain invaluable confidence in the process.
