Philo4Thought Inc. is a 501(c)3 philanthropic educational nonprofit foundation....
 

Our Mission as a mentoring initiative to help today’s young professionals achieve the next level of success in work and in life. We do this by offering collaborative publications, advisory workshops and networking opportunities with peer mentors and seasoned professionals. We are also committed to supporting local and global organizations that provide valuable  developmental resources/ services to college students, new grads and transitioning young professionals/ entrepreneurs.

Established in 2009, the Philo4Thought Hellenic Mentoring Initiative was a local project initiated to inspire college students in New York City through a series of small-group networking/ mentoring activities. As we gained momentum we launched an advisory blog of inspirational and instructional articles. Today we also offer a wider range of publications, workshops/ seminars and an annual conference.

 

Today, while our primary audience remains the Hellenic Young Professional (HYP) based in the tristate area, we have expanded to help affiliate minority youth groups throughout North America and Europe. The basis of our teachings is Hellenic in nature and spirit, and our  open door policy helps us provide an inclusive, high-quality community service for all those in need.

Burgeoning Nonprofit & Community Outreach: In 2014 we developed formal monthly advisory seminars, annual conferences and professional expos. As our network continues to expand we are constantly planning new collaborative community outreach initiatives to offer guidance to the young professional community.

Our annual HYP Spring Conference has been hosted in prestigious settings including St. John's University Manhattan Campus (2020), the Wells Fargo Conference Center (2019), the Consulate of Greece in New York (2018), Columbia University (2015-2017) and the Archdiocesan of the Holy Trinity Cathedral (2014). We are looking forward to hosting a plethora of upcoming large- and small-group events and outreach initiatives in the years ahead. Additionally, we are happy to provide one-on-one mentoring consultations as needed.

In 2018, we established the Career Mission @ Cathedral (formerly our Mentoring Monday workshop), hosted once a month at the Archdiocesan Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in NYC. CMC is a monthly discussion group that operates as a "safe space" to discuss professional and academic questions, review resumes, etc. in a small-group setting. These events are open to the public and cater to youth ~17 and older. For more information about our upcoming CMC group meetings, please visit our Events Page.

We are also available to visit specific groups and schools to train small groups in a variety of professional development topics as Concierge Mentors. Our team consists of top-notch professionals and peer mentors who are able to address your needs at little to no cost. We are here for you.

10th Anniversary: 2019 marked our 10th year of community outreach and charitable service. To date, we have helped over 350,000 individuals (global readers, clients and event participants) through online and print publications, monthly and annual events as well as related charitable work. We continue to collaborate with local, regional, national and global organizations to seek and create quality career-related opportunities.

In the face of the 2020 COVID-19 global pandemic, we remain strong and at your service, offering online training, publications and advisory services to the community in collaboration with our many esteemed sponsors and strategic partners.
