2021 YPT Mentoring Program

Forbes recently reported that, while 76% of people think mentors are important, only 37% actually have one. We would like to change that equation.

We are thrilled to announce that YPT International has launched a mentorship program to help transportation professionals learn from transportation professionals. We are eager to empower those with more experience to share their knowledge, skills and journey. And we want rising transportation wonks to learn from those who have walked before them in order to grow their careers and network.

We will be accepting applications from interested transportation professionals. Nevertheless, it is important to note that all mentees must be a YPT member but anyone in the transportation community can be a mentor.

PROGRAM Info

Date Launch: The program begins with a formal matching process in October 2021.

Program Time Commitment: We encourage our mentor-mentee pairs to meet monthly, recommending a commitment of 5-6 hours every month.

Timeframe: This program will last for 6 months. We host additional networking, coaching, and social events throughout the year for our mentors and mentees.

We will work to modify and improve the program over time. Thank you for being a part of YPT!
