A good cup of coffee can be a life changing experience, especially when it’s a coffee set up through the Ten Thousands Coffee project. Ten Thousand Coffees is a youth movement designed to facilitate mentorship programs to connect aspiring youth to industry leaders and experienced professionals willing to share insights over coffee.
While I certainly don’t consider myself an “Expert” in my field, I know that I have a lot of insight and experience in my industry as an entrepreneur and now with my new position as a Community Manager working in advertising. I’ve signed up to share my experience with “Novices” on the platform but I will also be signing up as a Novice so that I can connect with other professionals with different experience in my industry.
Want to be involved? All you have to do is sign up and create your profile as either a Novice or Expert. Novices can then browse the Expert profiles and fine one they would like to connect with. When the Expert accepts your invitation you can set up a time to talk over coffee and you can choose to meet in person, or over video chat, email, or phone.
So what are you waiting for? Let’s get coffee!
