Thank you for your interest in applying for the 2016/2017 Mentor Pensacola class. The program works by connecting current and active PYP members to successful and established professionals in the Pensacola Bay Area. Mentors will help PYP members refine their career paths and long-term professional goals, and provide networking opportunities with other “heavy hitters” in the community. This program will thereby help shape the next generation of leaders in our community by encouraging their professional and personal growth, and it will also help maintain a strong workforce for our area.
The Pensacola Bay area has a wealth of strong business and community leaders, as well as enthusiastic and influential young professionals. Mentor Pensacola is designed to provide one-on-one mentorship to the young professionals in our community who are the next generation of leaders. The program also allows the established leaders in our community to help mold and influence the area’s up-and-coming young professionals.
Mentees will look to their Mentors for guidance and act as a sounding board while refining long-term professional goals and become a strong voice in the community. Mentors will also help to provide opportunities for you to start growing your professional network.
The program will run from October 1, 2016 to September 30, 2017.
