Chattanooga Chamber accepting applications for Protégé Program

Young Professionals of Chattanooga and the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce are accepting applications for the 2020-21 Protégé team-based mentoring program for early to mid-career professionals.

Protégé Chattanooga is a nine-month, team-based mentoring program in which early and mid-career professionals learn from seasoned local executives and each other.

“I was honored to be selected as a Protégé mentee,” says current class member Shawnice Beard. “I met amazing peers who became my friends. The monthly sessions allowed us to connect and share early career pains.

“It was also great to see a diverse group of Chattanooga leaders and hear their stories as they offered their wisdom. Protégé allowed me to explore new opportunities and inspired me to become more involved in the community.”

Protégé offers day and evening cohorts made up of 12 participants each. Each cohort meets twice a month. The program will begin with an orientation in August and end with graduation in May 2021. Applicants must be between the ages of 21 and 40 and are not required to be current YPC members. The cost to participate in Protégé Chattanooga is $500. Some partial scholarships are available. The application deadline is June 12.
