    Mentoring

    Together we can help women in our community become an inspiration for generations to come. 
    This program fosters meaningful connections between females in all stages of their career.

     

    Mentors help shape a young professional’s future by sharing your knowledge and providing a firsthand glimpse of life and work in the Holland/Zeeland area. At the conclusion of the program, mentors and mentees often find that the learning has been mutual and that the relationship has grown in unexpected ways. 

     

    Our Mentoring Program is a yearly program that kicks off in the Fall. Check back in summer 2020 to apply!
