The Mentorship Program connects young professionals with established members of the Norman community. Norman NEXT’s mission is to attract, retain and propel the best and brightest in Norman. This program was created to do just that by providing an opportunity for mentees (Norman NEXT members) to gain insight into career paths, community, and professional development from successful business women and men.
The program lasts from late January through May. It consists of two scheduled group meetings. Outside of these, the mentor and mentee coordinate the gatherings to fit their schedules. Each pair-up is different, but the idea is to meet enough times to establish a relationship where you both feel comfortable to ask questions and grow, professionally and personally. Examples of possible interactions would include lunches, job shadowing, Happy Hour, introduction to an organization such as Rotary, etc. Typically, mentor/mentees meet 2-4 times per month.
