Mentorship for Young professionals
Mentor Pensacola is a professional mentorship program led by Pensacola Young Professionals (PYP) in partnership with the Greater Pensacola Chamber.
Initially launched by PYP’s Professional Development team in October 2015, Mentor Pensacola is returning in 2021 with renewed focus, excitement, and leadership. Mentor Pensacola offers PYP members (between the ages of 18 and 40) the opportunity to be “paired” with a Greater Pensacola Chamber member and/or community leader who will help mold and influence the area’s up-and-coming young professionals and inspire growth on a professional and personal level. We hope our members will gain confidence and a long-term mentor who will be there to help them succeed in their careers and beyond.
In this one-on-one mentorship, mentors will aid their mentees in refining a career path by helping them set long-term professional goals and providing opportunities to network with other leaders in our community, as well as promoting a strong workforce in the Pensacola Bay area. Mentors come from various fields, including non-profit and corporate leaders, business owners, and more. The program requires that mentors not only be an influential force in the community, but in their respective fields as well.
Once paired, Mentors and Mentees agree to participate in Mentor Pensacola for one year, meet at least one hour every month, and complete a quarterly feedback report.
