Applications Now Open! CORE Group’s 2023 YPN Mentorship Program

CORE Group launched the Mentorship Program in 2018 to further support the career development of our young professionals by drawing on the extensive and far-reaching knowledge and experience of CORE Group members. By doing so, we hope to deepen the collaboration, engagement, and learning among our diverse community.

Over the last four years, the program has convened over 40 Mentor-Mentee pairs of varying levels of experience, professional backgrounds, and geographic locations. The program is open to CORE Group members globally.

“I thank CORE Group a lot for pairing [My Mentor] and I up together! He is a wonderful person and a thoughtful and kind mentor. He has helped me immensely in the past year and I look forward to being friends with him going forward. Thank you all for this wonderful program you set up – it really has a valuable impact and it is so incredibly important. It gave me a mentor and a network outside of my workplace, which I have always wanted, and one that I will always be grateful for ”

–Mentee, 2022

MENTEES must be CORE Group organizational members, individual members, or student members. They are interns, early career professionals, or those looking for a career change.
