Mentor Connect is an introductory event that serves as a springboard to establish relationships between the experienced and knowledgeable business leaders of LWRBA and emerging young professionals of YLA. This program provides both mentors and mentees professional development, produces authentic interactions that offer guidance and insight immediately and allows the mentors an opportunity to empower mentees to become the future business leaders of Manatee and Sarasota counties.

In essence, you can think of Mentor Connect as speed networking meets mentorship! On March 23, mentees will have an opportunity to meet with several mentors in short, focused conversations regarding topics selected by the mentees. The hope is that each mentee will identify one or two mentors that they connected with, after which, the two can then build an ongoing relationship.

Thursday, March 23
5:30-7:30 p.m.
Location: Cowork LWR
8130 Lakewood Main St #103, Lakewood Ranch, FL 34202
