Mentorship is key to career success for Young Professionals. We know that no one starts at the top and there are many lessons to be learned throughout one's career. As a community organization that aims at driving business through relationships, we have created an impactful and meaningful mentorship program that is a great benefit to our Young Professional (YP) members.
The DTC|YP Mentorship Program is designed to enhance personal and professional growth while ultimately building a stronger business community. The program offers mentorship opportunities for our YP members both on a one-on-one basis and in group settings. We are very fortunate to have strong intellectual resources available within the DTC business community. Likewise, we have attracted some of the brightest and most talented business professionals in the area to volunteer their time in a mentorship capacity.
The program kicks off each year in September. The initial event is designed in a speed dating format to give each YP member the opportunity to meet a majority of the eligible mentors. From there, we gather feedback from each of the participants and use that information to appoint mentorship pairings. If you are interested in participating in our next program, please contact Justin Nimock, President of the DTC Young Pros, at 303-820-5039 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As new business owners, we were struggling to market and brand our business in a successful way. Not only did Michelle help us create solid direction and smart marketing tactics, but she opened doors for us that provided huge opportunities that would have been unobtainable without her help. We loved the mentorship program and can say it was one of the key components in helping us gain confidence as business owners, elevate our marketing efforts and ultimately drive the success we've had over the last year.
It was an honor to be a part of the DTC Chamber of Commerce mentorship program. My mentor has helped me recapture a fresh perspective about my future career objectives. Our relationship not only guided me professionally, but I also earned a trusted friend and advocate. I would highly recommend the program for anyone looking to grow, support and create a potentially lifelong bond.
The mentorship experience that the DTC Young Pros offer is great for learning from those that provide insights from years of experience and who are willing to listen and advise you in the right direction as you grow in life.
