...because it all starts with one
We've all faced that period of self-doubt and questioning- asking things like: "Where do I even begin? How do I begin? How can I do this? Am I too young?". Project One was created to help alleviate this by providing a starting point for your ideas- a connection to bounce ideas off of and gain real insight and experience from.
Through the founder of FEM in STEM's entrepreneurial journey of not knowing where to begin- she realized that no matter how old you may be there is no better time than now to start. She has developed a diverse network of other young go-getters and has brought them together as a resource for you here.
Project One is a mentorship-like program where young individuals are connected with young mentors across Canada. These young mentors are innovators, entrepreneurs, community change-makers, and game-changers from all across the country who all share the same characteristic of taking an idea and turning it into a reality.
You should fill out the request form if:
You have an idea (whether it be a startup, school club, or anything in between) and need a little help getting started
You desire to make an impact
You are ready to get out of your comfort zone
You want to get in touch with some amazing young inspirations
No idea is too big or too small- if you're unsure, fill out the form anyways!
All you need to do is submit a request form and we'll match you with one of our mentors! You and your mentor will schedule a time to meet in person, chat over the phone, or start an email chain. You will have the opportunity to learn about your mentor's story and tell them a little bit about what your needs and roadblocks are currently. From there, you and your mentor can choose to reconnect accordingly.
We set you up with the first-step and you take it from there to run with it!
