Nonprofit Overview

Ignite passion, camaraderie, competition, dedication, enthusiasm, and growth!

Accende, aka Mentoring Mission, has a simple goal: good jobs for those who might otherwise fall through the cracks. We have taken a two-track approach - Vocational: AMPLiFI- Aviation Maintenance Technician PipeLine Focused Initiative Jobs in the avionics and aeronautic trade are anticipated to grow 40% over the next twenty years. Industry leaders want employees, and students want a path toward a strong career.

Problem Solving: Harvard Business School (HBS) Case Studies We take the curriculum used by the top business schools in the world and bring it into the classroom. Students are treated to a master class by volunteer MBAs. Unpacking the case, students help one another understand complex issues and, by extension - start seeing how they can solve problems in their community.
