Our 2022 virtual Mentorship Program facilitates career development for both emerging and experienced planners alike by creating a valuable opportunity to connect and grow alongside other planning professionals. The Program is designed to create a participatory learning environment and interactive networking opportunities for planners across the Central Coast. Events include presentations from experienced professionals, Q & A sessions, and breakout rooms. Additionally, mentors will collaborate with their mentees in-between monthly events.
