Next Generation Mentoring Program

Cobb Young Professionals
Next Generation Mentoring Program Application


The Next Generation Mentoring Program consists of face-to-face meetings and events throughout the program year, including discussions to set and track goals. Mentors will provide young professional participants with expertise and insight needed to grow successfully in their career, while helping develop and achieve personal goals.

Attendance at all program events and meetings is mandatory for maximum involvement. The time commitment is for eight one-on-one sessions (date and time to be determined with mentors) during the program year, as well as five program dates:

  • Oct. 20, 2022: Pairing Party, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
  • Nov. 10, 2022: Orientation, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • Jan. 24, 2023: Mentee Roundtable 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
  • March 2, 2023: Mid-Program Social, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
  • May 11, 2023: Wrap Up Party, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

A tuition fee is required to cover materials, monthly program expenses and events.
Often employers are pleased to pay part or all of the tuition for such a program as this. If selected for participation, a non-refundable participation fee of $650 is due by October 3, 2022.

    There are limited, needs-based financial assistance funds available, covering up to $650 of the program tuition. Applicants who would like to be considered for financial assistance should email Rebecca Chadwick at to request an application. Your request for consideration will be held in the utmost confidence, and will in no way affect the selection process.

    The deadline to apply for financial assistance is Friday, September 2, 2022 (in addition to your Next Generation Mentoring Program application.)

All applicants or their companies must be members of the Cobb Chamber of Commerce.

NOTE: Letters of recommendation will not be considered by the Next Generation Mentoring Program Selection Committee and should not be submitted.
