The Greater Phoenix Urban League Young Professionals is ecstatic to announce the launch of YP CoNext, a youth mentorship program for high school students grades 9th -12th. YP CoNext joins together young professional men and women, as mentors, with teenagers of the Greater Phoenix Metropolitan Area.


YP CoNext, launching in July 2017, consists of monthly workshops that will focus on leadership, professional, and personal development. The youth will connect with mentors from a variety of career backgrounds including engineering, law, health care, and entrepreneurship.  YP CoNext encourages students to dream extraordinary endeavors and create plans to reach goals on a personal and professional level.


Interested students should apply here.
