Provide an Internship / Become a Mentor

It’s hard starting out in a career as a young person—particularly if you don’t have the family and extended family networks to help get your foot in the door. Help us level the playing field. Offer an internship and sign up to become a mentor as part of Aspen’s Element Fleet Management Youth Capital Program!

As a mentor, you’ll provide valuable work experience and coaching to a youth with similar interests or career path. With the help of leading industry professionals and entrepreneurs like you, we can help vulnerable youth receive the mentorship opportunity of a lifetime.
