TUCSON, ARIZONA — December 16, 2021 — This week, Arizona’s largest young professional network launches its Spring ’22 Mentorship Cohort for its nearly 800 members.  

Tucson Young Professionals is building the largest mentorship platform in the region! Our Spring ‘22 Mentorship Cohort application just opened for members. We are doubling our Beta cohort size of 12 pairs to 25, in partnership with the business and community leaders at the Southern Arizona Leadership Council.

The mentorship curation process is designed to take into account life/career stage, desired goals, job sector, etc., and will guide the mentee and mentor through the pursuit of personal, professional, and community impact goals throughout a 12-week program, pairing enough structure to be engaging, with enough opportunity for organic, individualized growth and development plan.

The TYP Mentorship program will kick off the week of February 7 with a special gathering and orientation, and wrap up with a graduation/celebration event the week of May 16th. Halfway through there will be a Mentorship Mixer. The Call for mentee applications is currently live, with final review, acceptance and pairing introductions the week of January 17th.

Each week will focus on a theme within our topic areas of Connect, Grow, and Thrive. Mentors and Mentees will each commit to one weekly half-hour meeting (virtual, in-person, or hybrid).


Explains Zach Yentzer, the Executive Director of TYP: “TYP’s vision is that our success, and the success of our members, is based on providing the best possible value to the most people possible. Tucson needed an accessible, large-scale mentorship platform for young professionals aged 21-45 and we are excited to provide it. There is little as effective for growing the next generation of community and organizational leaders, and retaining and rooting young professionals in community, than mentorship. I’m excited to continue the growth of this scalable model and create numerous, long-lasting partnerships for the good of Greater Tucson.” 

The Southern Arizona Leadership Council, an organization of 140 of the region’s most involved and engaged community leaders committed to the thriving and flourishing of Southern Arizona. 

“We have been proud supporters of the work of Tucson Young Professionals for many years now, and know that a successful future requires intergenerational collaboration. Our members look forward to these mutually beneficial mentorship relationships,” writes President/CEO of the Southern Arizona Leadership Council, Ted Maxwell.
