This year marked the launch of the NBCUniversal Mentorship Program where members of the City Year Los Angeles Civic Engagement Team are paired with employees in the company’s Women’s Network for extra support and guidance. Mentors conduct on-going conversations throughout the year, providing career, professional, and education guidance.

“To have the opportunity to give back to the City Year Civic Engagement Team and further strengthen our relationship with one of the company’s largest non-profit partners was an opportunity we didn’t want to miss. Through the program, not only are we able to impact the local community, but also provide a meaningful way for our employees to be engaged, get involved, and empower the next generation of community leaders."

“I am so thankful for the NBCUniversal Mentorship program.  I was so lucky to be partnered with Dunia Elvir – a Telemundo News Anchor - as my mentor. Dunia has had an amazing career. She knows all about having a dream and doing what is takes to achieve it. I can only aspire to have her dedication and work ethic. With her guidance, I hope to learn all there is to learn in the field of communications and entertainment."
