Nubian Project is a not-for-profit organization that focuses on social and career mentorship for young people who are visible minorities, with an aim to promote inclusion.

Nubian Project was founded in 2017 with Inclusivity at its focus. Recognizing that minorities face the greatest challenge in accessing mentors on their path to success. We seek to provide specialized mentorship programs in select professions to guide our applicants into a more accessible and successful future. Our targets are students in post secondary institutions to early years in their career life.

Over the years, we have served as mentors to young people from various parts of the world, we share our experiences of successes and failures, so our failures are not repeated, and our successes are reinvented.

Our stories span people like Precious who immigrated from USA in 2017, to Lola from Nigeria, Alice from Zimbabwe, Sarah from the Philippines, Sonya from Uganda, Arvinder from India, the list goes on.

Our mentors are a team of volunteers, who have successfully carved a niche in their sectors and consists of Accountants, Doctors, Lawyers, HR professionals, instructors, Students, Pharmacists and so on.
