The Next Generation Mentoring Program consists of face-to-face meetings and events throughout the program year, including discussions to set and track goals. Mentors will provide young professional participants with expertise and insight needed to grow successfully in their career, while helping develop and achieve personal goals.

Attendance at all program events and meetings is mandatory for maximum involvement. The time commitment is for eight one-on-one sessions (date and time to be determined with mentors) during the program year, as well as five program dates:

  • Thursday, Oct. 19 – Pairing Party (5:30 to 7:30 p.m.), Mandatory
  • Thursday, Nov. 9 – Orientation (11 a.m. to 1 p.m.), Mandatory
  • Thursday, Feb. 8 – Mentee Roundtable (11 a.m. to 1 p.m.), Optional
