National Virtual Mentoring Program Manager

Start Date: July 18, 2023


Apex for Youth empowers underserved Asian and immigrant youth from low-income families in NYC to unlock their potential and a world of possibility. Through programming focusing on health and well-being, education, and community engagement, Apex for Youth creates transformative social connections and celebrates cultural identity to build the confidence and self-efficacy of future generations.

Apex serves approximately 2,000 students annually from Kindergarten through their post-secondary years. We provide children and young adults with opportunities to develop strong relationships with adults who volunteer as consistent and caring mentors and role models.


The National Virtual Mentoring Program (NVMP) addresses the personal, educational and social needs of high school students around the country through virtual one-on-one caring relationships with adult volunteers using a unique blend of one-on-one mentorship and group programming. NVMP is a newly created program that launched in January 2023. The program aims to bring meaningful mentorship to Asian American youth who might not otherwise have access to culturally specific resources and mentorship because of their location. It also aims to explore the diverse ethnic and geographic experiences that youth and mentors across the country bring to the program.

The NVMP Manager will be in charge of designing and piloting this virtual program using the program model from Apex’s New York City based programs.  Reporting to the Associate Director of Mentoring Programs, the ideal National Mentoring Program Manager candidate will have a strong ability to build community with high school aged youth and volunteers in a virtual setting, strong curriculum and program design skills, and excellent program management skills.
