Is this the right mentorship program for me?

This is a high touch mentorship program where we get to know you and personally invest in your success. Each cohort is hand selected by our team of psychologists. We are looking for students with BIG dreams, who we believe would most benefit from our support, whose interests align with our expertise, and who are motivated to grow in community.

GIVE SUPPORT

The Village is our FREE mentorship program and safe haven for Black doctoral students in psychology. We are fostering a space where the next generation of psychologists have access to collaborative opportunities, culture, and genuine care, leading to a more empowering journey through the academy than the generations before. Generous donations allow us to host events, pay guest speakers, take them to conferences, send care packages, and offset financial hardships.

 

With an overwhelming 100 applicants for our 2023 cohort, we need your help expanding our reach! If you feel called to champion this cause, we welcome your support.
