Find a mentor to help advance your career!
Young Catholic professionals, come and enjoy drinks and light appetizers at this casual Meet and Greet self matching program . Find a successful career mentor to guide and coach you in your career.
WHY DO WE NEED A CAREER MENTORSHIP PROGRAM?
Synod results demonstrate that young Catholic adults desire guidance as they make their way through life's journey.
A mentor can:
-Give you valuable career pointers
-Listen to your hopes and dreams to help you discern your vocational calling
-They can also help you open doors to career opportunities.
-Help you make connections
-Help you avoid career pitfalls
Your mentors have demonstrated success in their careers and have juggled the complexities of career and family. They possess a life affirming stance to respect life from conception to its natural end + are solidly formed in their faith.
We have mentors from a wide variety of career backgrounds:
ethics and philosophy
HOW IT WORKS:
You and your mentor will self-select in this program + agree to touch base once a month till the end of 2019 or some other arrangement that is mutually agreed upon.
A simple signed contract will keep things on track.
Your relationships can be renewed in 2020, provided it is mutually agreed upon by both parties.
Depending on the demand, some mentors will mentor a small group of mentees. Others might prefer a 1:1 arrangement.
Monthly mentor touch points will be via Skype, phone, email, or face to face meetings or as mutually agreed upon.
The YP Lounge will touch base with a survey during your mentorship journey to see how things are going.

Mission of The YP Lounge:
The purpose of the YP Lounge is to help young professionals appreciate the many facets to building a culture of life vs. a culture of death.
The YP Lounge is developed by the same creators as Catholic After Hours(TM)
YP topics will cover career, dating, life, marriage, family, and provide an understanding of the fundamentals needed to care for the common good.
Young professionals will also be knowledgeable, savvy, and more fulfilled as persons when they understand how to define human dignity, authentic freedom, happiness, and liberty.
Philosophical, objective and scientific truths, natural law, virtue, and universal principles will be their guide. This is the key to building a flourishing society.
The special events downtown are presented by dynamic ‘talk show hosts’ and an informed guest panel who can address relevant issues and provide insights by analyzing pop culture, the frontiers of science, philosophy, law, medicine, ethics, political philosophy, religion and the social sciences.
