What is the Richland Young Professionals Mentorship Program?
The Richland Young Professionals Mentorship Program is a cornerstone of RYP’s goal to develop the skills of young professionals. The program gives 12 RYP members the opportunity to connect with seasoned, high-level business leaders for 6 months of learning, discovery, and challenge, all while providing mentees with a firsthand look at life and work in Richland County. Mentors and mentees in the program reflect the diversity of workplace offerings in Richland County such as small and large businesses, non-profit, healthcare, and education.
