My name is Jared Pollack. I have a background in financial services and currently attend NYU Stern’s Full Time MBA Program. I’m originally from Long Island and live in NYC.
Soon after launching my career, I sought to give back to the community in the form of career mentorship and wanted to join a program that was selective on its mentee admission. I was referred to StreetWise Partners from several members of my network who were already volunteering with the organization. Through StreetWise’s vetting process, I was able to mentor smart and motivated, yet underserved candidates who truly wanted to give it their all, but had limited resources to launch.
I joined as a Career Mentor where I guided a Russian immigrant who previously worked as a flight attendant to plan her goals and realize her transferable skills. Through this experience, I learned to work with people from backgrounds different from my own and put myself in other people’s shoes.
After a successful mentoring cycle, I was selected to facilitate weekly sessions as a Program Officer. I took on the role to impact on a broader set of individuals, learn the inner workings of the program, strengthen my presentation skills and grow my network. Later that year, I was invited to join the Junior Board, where I aided in fundraising and prepared for the organization’s annual gala. This year, I joined the Volunteer Leadership Board, where I sit on the Corporate Engagement Committee.
Today, I ask you to support this important mission that is not only close to my heart, but is also key for helping the underserved communities build confidence for life and secure employment. Please make a donation to support this effort and for helping me reach my goal. Thank you!
