Next Generation Mentoring Program

Cobb Young Professionals created the Next Generation Mentoring Program in 2013 to build connections between members of Cobb Young Professionals and established members of the Cobb Chamber, in order to develop the future leaders of the Cobb County business community.

The 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 seven 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
  • Thursday, Mar. 8 – Mid-Year Social (5:30 to 7:30 p.m.), Optional
  • Thursday, June 7 – Wrap-Up Party (5:30 to 7:30 p.m.), Mandatory
