Finding a wayahead – note from Angel

The idea to start wayahead came from my passion for helping people a few steps behind me in life. I remembered what it was like for me trying to plan for my future and how difficult it was to sift through all of the information that was available. I tried to think of ways that I could help people along in their journey and I came up with a simple solution–talk to people. Talking with someone is one of the easiest things we can do, but it has the potential to make a huge impact. 

In the 2 years that I’ve been building this idea, I’ve come across countless people who share the same passion. Their support has helped me refine and grow my idea in remarkable ways. Each person I’ve shared my vision with has played a part in helping make this a reality. But I didn’t do it alone.

At wayahead, we’re committed to our mission of democratizing access to mentors. As a Benefit Corporation, our foundation is established with the guiding principle to never put profit over our values. Our most important stakeholders will always be our mentees. 

To reach our goals, we need a committed team of rockstars who will stop at nothing to make things happen, and that’s exactly what we’ve got. As individuals, we’re as different as they come. Some of us served in the military, while others went to graduate school, but the one thing we all have in common is a passion for helping our communities. It’s amazing to see the things we’ve been able to accomplish in such a short amount of time, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for our community. 

Always remember, we’re all mentors in our own way.
