Speed Mentoring is a comprehensive, full-day event, which provides a meaningful jumpstart to participating students’ postsecondary journeys.

2023 Speed Mentoring Recap

On April 20, 2023 we hosted our sixth annual Speed Mentoring event! 100 high school students from Anchorage and the Mat-Su engaged in small-group mentoring sessions with 22 high-level professionals representing a variety of career fields. Mentors shared their experiences and provided insight into options following graduation.

This event would not have been possible without our sponsors: ConocoPhillips and CU1; our in-kind sponsors, Visit Anchorage and Anchorage School District; the incredible mentors and students who attended this event, teachers who helped coordinate student registration and transportation, and our dedicated AKWorld volunteers.

Thank you to our generous event sponsors for 2023 Speed Mentoring!
