Sharing career stories through our mentoring programs has always been at the heart of ABCN’s work and recently we’ve taken that one step further.

Through our ABCN Connects initiative, we asked our mentors to share with students their personal and professional stories of resilience, adaptability and dealing with uncertainty or change. We asked questions such as: What advice would you give to your teenage self? What does it really mean to do your job? What’s been your most fabulous failure and what did you learn from it? And the stories came rolling in.

These short video stories are here to offer motivation, inspiration, hope and practical tips for young people as they think about the future. They come from a wide variety of ABCN mentors, from CEOs to recent graduates and ABCN program alumni.

Teachers and students: we’ve put together a discussion guide as a suggested way for you to watch these messages. Click here to download the resource to use at home or in the classroom. The videos are aimed at students currently in high school.
