About the Yosemite Mentorship program

In line with our school's ethical values, mutual support and altruism, and in response to growing needs for business and entrepreneurship education manifested by the Gadz’arts community, AFAM now offers a great opportunity to join a mentorship program for Gadz'arts entrepreneurs.

To fulfill this purpose AFAM team created the Yosemite program, named after a Californian national park famous for its giant, ancient sequoia trees, for the iconic viewpoints and the granite cliffs of El Capitan and Half Dome. The Yosemite program is about exploring novel business possibilities in the United States in order to build or develop your own business, grow your business idea and take it to the next level.
- The Yosemite program is designed to help existing and future entrepreneurs understand and develop their companies in the USA.
- We also thrive to create a spirit of entrepreneurship amongst the existing Gadz'arts and to open their horizon towards creating or developing a company in the USA, which is simplier than one might think.

Since AFAM is a nonprofit organization, our Yosemite mentoring services are free:
    •    You can meet with your mentor via email, video, phone or online chat (one or several consultations are possible)
    •    Our mentors are experienced in all aspects and stages of business development, whether you’re thinking of starting a business or growing your existing company.
