Join Our Mentoring Program

A critical component of the Space & Satellite Professionals International’s (SSPI) mission is to educate and help influence the next generation of professionals to consider a career within the satellite industry. The truth is that even young space enthusiasts know little about our business and often fail to consider careers in this highly dynamic industry that delivers critical connectivity to commercial and government users worldwide.

You have the opportunity to make a difference by joining our Mentoring Program as either a Mentor or Mentee. Focused on the student community, with support from experienced professionals, it is the program’s goal to deliver students with the knowledge, skills, network and career information required to determine if a career in the satellite industry is the right fit.

  • Join the program as a Mentee if you are a student and want to understand the knowledge, skills, and opportunities available in the satellite industry. Students can also seek help and ask questions from current satellite professionals when deciding on a future industry career.
  • Join the program as Mentor if you are a skilled professional who wants to help educate and inform young students as they look into a potential career in the satellite industry.

This annual program starts every fall but you can register at any time. It is an important program that brings great benefits and satisfaction to all that participate.

“While I was optimistic it would be beneficial, it exceeded my expectations with the level of participation and enthusiasm from my mentee.”

“It's a highly rewarding, enriching experience. Happy to be a part of it.”

“Great initiative. Hopefully a program that will grow.”

We look forward to your support and involvement. For more information to get involved contact: sspimidatlantic@sspi.org.
