Overview 

YNPNdc is hosting its 4th Mentoring Program from September 2020 to May 2021. Young professionals will be matched with seasoned professionals in one-to-one mentoring relationships. Mentors and mentees will be matched based on professional interest and professional and personal goals. 

Through YNPNdc’s 2020 Mentoring Program, participants will connect with leaders in the social sector, attend professional development workshops focused on leadership skills, and join YNPN’s nationwide network of leaders across 42 cities.

In addition to facilitated workshops, YNPNdc will provide a forum for mentees to develop leadership and interpersonal skills through coaching and feedback while gaining new tools to advance their goals. Mentors will have the opportunity to expand their leadership and interpersonal skills, gain new perspectives and ideas while sharing key insights, tools, and experiences.

YNPNdc Leadership Note

While we would love for this program to have events in person, we recognize the relatively unique situation of our world at this time. We plan to host YNPNdc-led events virtually for the time being and advise program mentors and participants to also meet virtually and practice responsible social distancing.
