Mentorship Program

YNPN Lowcountry is launching a pilot mentorship program to begin in fall 2017. Through the six month program, we will connect YNPN Lowcountry members with experienced professionals from the nonprofit field. Mentors and mentees will be matched through a combination of application responses and feedback from the speed networking match night. YNPN Lowcountry will accept between five and ten mentor/mentee partners for the initial pilot program.
