2020 Leadership Link Mentoring Program

The Purpose:
The Leadership Link Mentoring Program is a partnership with the Terre Haute Rotary Club and Leadership Connect of West Central Indiana (formally Young Leaders).  It is designed to bring experienced professionals together with young professionals in the Wabash Valley.  This relationship will help fine-tune up and coming leaders in our community while allowing experienced professionals to network with different individuals.

Who Can Participate?
Any dues paying member of Leadership Connect can apply with no additional program fees.

The Relationship
The relationship developed by the mentorship program will benefit both the mentor and the mentee.  The mentor’s advice and guidance may help lead the mentee to a successful future, while the mentee’s new ideas and point of view could add to the mentor’s already successful career.  All will gain new perspective and great networking opportunities.
