Step 1 of 1


The Mentorship Academy is an initiative of CNX Foundation and part of CNX’s commitment to investing in its local community. Designed for high school students who do not plan to immediately attend a four-year college, the Academy is focused on providing urban and rural youth from economically disadvantaged regional Appalachian communities with greater opportunities—helping provide these young adults a bridge to family-sustaining careers. Following the mentorship program, students will have developed new relationships with peers and business leaders across western Pennsylvania, a new excitement for the region’s career opportunities and an understanding of how to pursue those careers.

Nick Deluliis, CEO of CNX Resources Corporation, founded the Mentorship Academy in 2021 to help disadvantaged young people realize their full potential and discover opportunities for upward mobility to which they never knew they had access.
