Why Mentoring?

Recruit more experienced employees to help teach and guide them. Not only can a mentoring program boost our bench strength for top jobs but people who learn more on the job are far less likely to quit.

How It Works:

Each mentee will be assigned to a Mentorship Circle that will meet once per quarter in 2023. 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.

The 2023 program is closed and we will open back up in the fall for 2024 participants
