Business-Education Partnership

Today's students represent tomorrow's workforce. To ensure tomorrow's employees possess the skills and a sound understanding of employers' expectations, now is the time for business professionals to play an active role in shaping young peoples' lives. Through The Lancaster Chamber's education-focused programming, business professionals can commit to and promote career exploration opportunities within their organization.

High School Mentoring Programs

Help shape and grow the future leaders of our local workforce by providing guidance, sharing wisdom and offering encouragement to a high school junior from a local school through a one-on-one mentoring relationship. Activities include job shadowing and special learning and professional growth opportunities. And new this year, in addition to the Chamber’s Women in Business Mentoring Program, we are offering a Young Men’s Mentoring Program. Click on the links, below, for details:
