Student-Athlete Mentoring Program

Together, the Women’s Sports Foundation and NBC Sports offer a mentoring program designed to help student-athletes translate the valuable skills they have acquired through participation in collegiate sports into successful careers.

The Student-Athlete Mentoring Program is an initiative designed to inspire and support collegiate female athletes as they explore potential career paths. Due to rigorous academic, training and competition schedules, student-athletes often have little time for internships and therefore lack job experience. The program, piloted in 2019 in partnership with NBC Sports, is aimed at helping student-athletes prepare to enter the workplace, and at providing valuable mentorship and tools that can lead to greater economic potential.

During the program cycle, student-athletes are engaged in events and webinars focused on career development, network-building, personal branding, communication and interviewing skills. NBC Sports employees are paired with each athlete, serving as one-to-one mentors, who share their professional experience, insights and advice on how to navigate the work environment.

“I really loved getting to know my mentor and developing our relationship as he was super helpful in going through what he specifically did. This helped me further realise how much I want to work in sports and particularly business operations.”
