Milotso for Student-Athletes

Maximize your platform and make a lifelong impact on yourself and others as a youth mentor.

Mentoring as a student-athlete gives you the opportunity to grow as a leader both on and off the court. We coordinate all the moving parts of mentorship so you can concentrate on your season—and personal and professional growth—for both you and your mentees.

Join other student-athletes realizing their full potential by making a difference in their communities

Student-athletes deserve more opportunities to make a lasting impact in their communities. We give you exactly that: a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to grow your leadership skills, build your resume and make an immediate impact in the lives of others.

Our program was created by current and former student-athletes who wanted to push their platforms—and passions—to new levels. We understand the realities of student-athletes' lives and crafted a program that makes it easy to make a difference on a busy schedule.

Rather than a one-time volunteer opportunity with limited impact, our program includes multiple touchpoints that conveniently fit into your schedule and cultivate real relationships between mentors and mentees, all without getting in the way of your season. 

There’s no mentorship experience required; our program gives you all the training and guidance you need to confidently navigate your roles as a mentor.

From mentee to mentor, the honor of teaching is a gift that never stops giving. And Milotso’s impact goes both ways. Kids receive immense value from mentors, but our mentors receive just as much in return as they gain powerful new perspectives, promote psychological fitness through deeply fulfilling service, and set themselves up for a successful next chapter in life with an outstanding addition to their resume.

With just 2% of NCAA student-athletes drafted to professional teams (according to the NCAA fact-sheet), we’re committed to helping the other 98% successfully pursue alternate professional careers. Simply put, our goal is to create positive change in our communities by offering opportunities for athletes and kids to connect productively.

Plug-and-Play Mentorship

Becoming a mentor can seem daunting. We give you everything you need to succeed through a convenient, turnkey program. Milotso is perfect for first-time mentors.

Schedule-Friendly Structure

Athletic departments need a program built to deliver maximum impact on a tight schedule. Milotso requires minimal coordination between stakeholders such as coaches, athletic directors, and others.

Established Partnerships
(and the Ability to Enhance Your Own)

Immediately tap into our network of partnerships empowering student-athletes to make an impact in multiple ways while enhancing any existing partnerships you already have. Milotso doesn’t replace your current partnerships—it strengthens them while connecting you to even more, all through a seamlessly coordinated program.

Real Relationships

Consistency is a key ingredient in building meaningful relationships through mentorship. It’s also one of the hardest things to achieve. We make it easy for student-athletes to stay connected over the period of a year and form real relationships with those they impact.

Enhance your mental wellness through deeply fulfilling service

Create meaningful relationships over time

Build your resume

Develop skills, including leadership, empathy, teamwork, and growth mindset

We give you a unique opportunity to represent not only yourself as an individual, but your team, athletic departments, and university by developing critical leadership skills that help you reach your highest potential. Milotso mentors dream bigger and maximize their impact. By interacting with a diverse group of mentees, you gain a broader perspective and a greater sense of empathy—the things that make great leaders after graduation.

Host team-building activities

Even simple team-building activities—like mentors filling backpacks for young students—provide kids with a strong start to the year that can motivate them to stay committed to their own success. Events like this, where student-athletes participate in activities together outside of practice and school, build a much-needed sense of team camaraderie and inspiration.

Provide convenient and time-efficient service opportunities

Our program director will help your team partner with local organizations already working with Milotso and build new relationships with organizations that are a great fit. We’ll then create a schedule for volunteer opportunities that work around your season and your team's unique needs.

Offer opportunities to drive long-term change in the community

Our partnership and volunteer opportunities are designed to build relationships between mentors and deliver meaningful education and inspiration. Activities are scheduled on a monthly basis with a heavy emphasis on events and relationship-building during the off-season. During the season, activities will be focused on creating regular contact with mentees via game or event attendance.

Milotso mentors get to help shape the next generation. It's a great opportunity to use the platform you've been given as an athlete to help kids develop into great people. Our athletes often come away finding mentorship to be one of the most fulfilling things they did as an athlete—and we want to bring that opportunity to many more athletes looking to make an impact.”
