Apply Now! CORE Group Young Professionals Network (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.

MENTORS must be CORE Group organizational members or individual members. They must have at least 3 years work experience in the field of global community health, and/or other areas in international development. Joining the program as a mentor is a rewarding opportunity to leverage your network and expertise to help young professionals with career growth and professional skills building.

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. Joining the program as a mentee is an opportunity to gain and/or improve professional skills such as networking, resume and cover letter writing. Please note that space is limited and placement in the program is not guaranteed.
