Are You Ready to Level Up?

The Sandbox Academy is a four-week accelerated mentoring program designed to help you stand out in your next job interview or at your next job fair. Each week, you'll learn practical insights from people who are directly involved with hiring for their organizations.

Now enrolling for Fall 2017! September 19 thru October 10.


Four-Week Journey

You'll have real conversations with leaders from a variety of industries and sectors. Each will share their personal journey and lessons learned throughout their careers. You'll be able to ask whatever questions you have for them and even pitch your ideas to them.

The Sandbox Academy kicks off its fall program on September 12 and runs thru October 3 in The Garage at Tech Square. Sessions are held on Tuesday evenings starting with a 5:30pm mentor dinner and formal program running 6-8pm.

Week 1: Know and use your strengths

Week 2: Set powerful goals

Week 3: Present yourself online and IRL

Week 4: Speed mentoring (aka Mentor Mashups)

Every summer, fall, and spring, the Sandbox Academy guides a new cohort of students through an accelerated personal growth experience. All of this is possible thanks to our partnership with Square on Fifth (SQ5) and ATDC
