The Cobb Chamber issued the following press release about the application process for the Cobb Young Professionals Next Generation Mentoring Program.

Applications are now being accepted for Cobb Young Professional’s 2022-2023 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 provide young professional participants with expertise and insight needed to grow successfully in their career, while helping develop and achieve personal goals.

“This mentorship program is one of the largest, most successful and most revered programs in the state,” said Katy Ruth Camp, 2022 Chair of Cobb Young Professionals. “It provides young professionals mentorship from some of Cobb’s most successful leaders, while also providing the mentors with a window into the world of today’s young professionals and strengthens their understanding of how to work and interact with the young professionals in their own lives.”

Applications are now open at through August 26. Thank you to Cobb Young Professionals Yearlong Presenting Sponsor, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Next Generation Mentoring Program Presenting Sponsor, Cobb EMC.
