YANG Mentorship Program

Under-40 Mentorship Program
The YANG Mentorship Program is designed for young professionals in the automotive aftermarket who are passionate about their growth and development.

The program provides opportunities for members to focus on personal and professional goals, while acquiring the tools to become tomorrow’s leaders.

The 2024 YANG Mentorship Program is closed.  Applications for 2025 will open in November.

Why Mentoring?

Recruit more experienced employees to help teach and guide them.

How It Works:

Each mentee will be assigned to a Mentorship Circle that will meet once per quarter in 2024. Each group will consist of approximately five mentees and one mentor and will be focused on a unique topic. Groups will be assigned during the YANG Mentorship Program Kick-Off Meeting in January.

The goal of these Mentorship Circles is for YANG mentees to experience all three YANG pillars in one program:


Create strong and long-lasting relationships within your circle.

Professional Development

Learn from your peers and also from a current leader in the industry.

Giving Back

Help others in your circle by offering your opinions and perceptions to various topics and situations.

Through this unique, small-group mentorship program, mentees will benefit from the wisdom of experienced and successful aftermarket veterans, like:
