Mentoring offers a chance to those with experience, knowledge and skills to give something back to the industry that has helped them succeed. It can be a deeply rewarding experience to open the eyes of young people to the exciting challenges of space and satellite and to help people starting their careers to navigate the road ahead.
SSPI partners with student organizations to bring the experience and knowledge of SSPI members to people in university and their early career years. Working remotely, mentors advise teams in student competitions, judge projects and form one-to-one relationships with mentees. With every hour they spend, they are helping this industry gain its share of the talent its growth demands.
