Nation One Academy Mentorship Program

At Nation One, we pride ourselves in not only developing great athletes on the field, but in developing exceptional young men off the field. As part of our investment in developing the future of our athletes, our mentorship program gives our young men access to some of the top professionals in the country through internships and speaker series.


For 3 months out of the year, our students get paired with leaders in the private and public sector for professional development and direct mentorship. They get to gain professional industry knowledge, while learning character development from successful and respected leaders. At the end of their internships, each student presents on their experience.


Every month our athletes get to hear from a diverse group of influential speakers, who share with them knowledge and motivation through speeches and workshops. The aim of our speaker series is a focus character development.

“A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself.”​
