The Youth Mentorship Program is a Champion Project of the Lake County Chamber of Commerce, with programs to benefit the Youth in Lake County

Youth Mentorship Program

The Youth Mentorship Program is for 18 to 24 year-olds, teaching soft skills in a structured environment, in partnership with Mendocino and Woodland Community Colleges. We match each participant with a local business leader to serve as a mentor through the course of the program.

Program Summary:

The LCCC Youth Mentorship Program prepares Lake County youth to enter the local workforce as professional, well connected, well supported individuals with outstanding communication skills.

• Mentees receive comprehensive leadership development and communication skills training through a series of seminars, team building activities, academic engagements, and Mentor
meetings.

• Mentors receive specific training to become successful at creating an arena in which their Mentee can achieve their goals and fulfill their potential. The YMP is from September - November, with weekly seminars taught by Mendocino and Woodland Community Colleges faculty. The participants are matched with business and community leaders in Lake County to mentor these young adults. An additional layer of training will be provided to the mentors to ensure success.
