Looking for a business mentor?

Are you a youth or student who would like to be connected with a local business mentor?

The Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce the launch of the Business Mentorship Program in January 2011. This program is focused on developing the next generation of leaders in our local communities.

The program focuses on mentorship, business management & leadership skills, volunteerism and networking. Selected participants will enjoy access to business seminars, afforded the opportunity to meet community leaders and given important insight into the inner workings of successful enterprises.

Entrepreneurial youth wanting to start their own businesses will receive feedback on their business concept/plan.

Mentees will be challenged to think critically about real local issues affecting businesses operating in different sectors of the economy.

If you are interested in taking part in our three-month pilot program (January- April 2011) please fill out an application form.

There is no firm deadline, but don't wait to apply - the program begins January 20.
