Mentors

Our partnerships with student organizations are making thousands of talented young people more aware of career opportunities in the satellite industry.  To do that work, we depend on satellite professionals in our membership to serve as mentors to student groups and individual students.  They participate in conference calls, review information and offer advice based on their experience in the industry.  When we sponsor student competitions, they serve as our judges.  We honor their contributions and thank them for helping our industry compete in the global war for talent.
