FAQs

About Conversations for Good

  • What is Conversations for Good?

Conversations for Good is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides online career advisory services to members 18+ years old.

We have partnered with People Grove to provide members seeking career advice to easily connect with our volunteer professionals. 

Within our direct services program, Conversations for Good matches students from underserved communities with the appropriate volunteer Advisor based on the students’ needs.

Volunteer Advisors not only get a chance to help someone by sharing their valuable experiences but they also receive feedback from the members they mentor on the level of impact they made. Nothing is more satisfying than knowing you made a big difference in someone’s life.

We believe that matching career seekers with the right mentor allows the career seeker to have a better idea of what is needed to pursue a given career or professional goal. Furthermore, that a career seeker can use the advice and resources we and the volunteer Advisors provide to achieve their own unique career goals and best utilize the the most helpful resources available to them.
