Expand your network – join a team that will be invested in your success for years to come

Visit your future workplace – get hands on experience in your field of interest

Invest in your future – prepare in advance for the decisions that will define your future

Give back – get acquainted with your responsibilities to the community

about

JOIN THE NETWORK

We offer a variety of opportunities for students and professionals to give back to their community. To get involved, send us an email at contact@experiencesikhi.com

If you are a Sikh professional, we are always looking to expand the Sikhia Mentor Database to reflect a more diverse array of careers and educational backgrounds. Likewise, our annual retreat is home to networking dinners and career development workshops which are dependent on professionals sharing their expertise.

If you are a student, expand your network by helping organize our Sikhia initiatives (including our talks, retreat, and mentor database). As a volunteer, you will work with a team to develop and implement ideas that empower others of your generation and propel them to new heights.
