Young Professional Network (YPN) NxtGen Mentor Program - Lancaster Chamber of Commerce

Young Professional Network (YPN) NxtGen Mentor Program

What is the Young Professionals Network (YPN) NxtGen Mentoring Program?

The Lancaster Chamber’s Young Professionals Network (YPN) engages, equips, and empowers young professionals (YPs) to be collaborative leaders and effective business professionals shaping the future of our community.

We launched the NxtGen Mentor Program for Young Professionals in 2022.

The NxtGen Mentor Program: YPN facilitates the pairing of young professionals and leaders within the Lancaster community to guide and inspire the next generation of leaders through professional and personal growth. The NxtGen Mentor Program is designed to foster long-term relationships that contribute to a strong local workforce as well as an equitable and prosperous Lancaster County

Through a one-on-one mentorship opportunity, mentees are supported by their mentors in refining their career path, defining short- and long-term professional goals, and developing solutions to barriers to success. Mentors are encouraged to provide opportunities to their mentees to network with other Lancaster leaders.
