The Troy Chamber is excited to announce the launch of the Troy Young Professionals Network, which creates and implements programs to assist professional members 35 years of age or younger. Their goals are as follows:
- To create an environment where members can connect with individuals in the same stage of their career
- To help early career professionals transition and thrive in the work force through educational programs and mentorship opportunities
In addition to planning social & educational programming, the Troy Young Professionals Network recently launched a mentorship program that matches young professionals with more experienced professionals to exchange resources, provide insights and learn new skills. The goal of the mentorship is for participants to create a foundation of trust, to be professionally and personally rewarded by their conversations, and to establish connections.
“It’s exciting to be part of this network,” says Moe Moua, Committee Chair of the Troy Young Professionals. She explains, “Often times our generation finds it hard to make meaningful connections with other professionals. We also seek professional development and growth that may not always be so easily accessible. The Troy YPG will strive to build these networks and make professional development more accessible.”
The group’s next event, entitled “Quarter Life Crisis,” will be held at Northwood University’s Troy campus on March 23, 2017. Beth Bryce, Northwood University’s Director of Career Advancement, will provide strategies to create a realistic quarter-life crisis action plan.
