How does the 100minds mentorship work?

100minds mentorship works by connecting students who are undertaking the challenge with a professional mentor working in one of Ireland’s top firms. A mentor's primary objective is to assist the student in hitting their fundraising goal of €1,000. The mentors secondary objective is to assist the student with their CV and discuss with them their plans after college. This is considerably valuable as students have 1:1 personal access to their mentor.

What is 100minds?

100minds is a social enterprise project that connects a very worthy charity - Temple Street Foundation - with students who engage in a focused, short term fundraising project with one collective target and agreed objective.

Can I do 100minds in final year?

Yes! The majority of our past participants have been in final year. We find that 100minds participants in final year tend to get the most out of the project and particularly value the mentorship available and connection with the companies involved.

How do I hit my €1,000 target?

We encourage students to do anything that involved aspects of project management. This can be anything from running a coffee morning in your local community, running an astro football tournament or something based on a skills exchange such as fundraising through music lessons or running digital classes for older members of your community. The concept or project doesn’t have to be big, taking part, learning new skills and making a difference is what matters most.

What are the benefits of getting involved?

In addition to making a significant social impact within society you’ll be challenged to fundraise €1,000 and provided with a professional mentor to assist you in your fundraising project. We’ve setup 100minds so that you can learn new skills by doing, network with people in your desired career field and gain some great experience for your CV and for future interviews - all whilst doing good :)
