Next Generation Mentoring Program

Bookmark This


The Elite Decision Group is excited to announce the launch of the Next Generation Mentoring Program for young adults through a few partners that we have. The Elite Decision Group's Next Generation Mentoring Program is dedicated to empowering young professionals between the ages of 18-29 who seek exciting opportunities for professional and personal growth. This program is a mentorship program. Statistics show that this age group is not eager to find a standard desk job, but they also aren’t certain starting their own business is the answer to their future.

Entrepreneurship education seeks to prepare people, especially youth, to be responsible, enterprising individuals who become entrepreneurs or entrepreneurial thinkers and contribute to economic development and sustainable communities. The Next Generation Mentoring Program is much more than a textbook course. Rather, students are immersed in real life learning experiences with the opportunity to take risks, manage the results, and learn from the outcomes.

For example:

– Young professionals reported being afraid to start their own business because they are unable to overcome personal doubts or because they feel they lack guidance from experienced role models.

– One of the most common barriers to starting a business is little demand for the product or service.

– 56% of young professionals will not accept a job from a company that bans social media and about 1/3 of them prioritize social media freedom and mobile device flexibility over salary.

– 70% believe being in an office regularly is unnecessary.
We have found the perfect answer for the needs of young entrepreneurs.

With the Next Generation Mentoring Program you can accomplish your goals without sacrificing your dreams; a balance between work and life is no longer a myth. Young professionals gain opportunities to earn more, see more, and do more with the Next Generation Mentoring Program.

What we offer is so different from traditional careers!


Applications are now available for the 2016-2017 program!


Elite Decision Group created the Next Generation Mentoring Program in 2015 to build connections between members of Young Professionals and established members of the Chamber of Commerce, in order to develop the future leaders of the business community.

The program consists of face-to-face meetings and events throughout the program year, including discussions to set and track goals. Mentors will provide young professional participants with expertise and insight needed to grow successfully in their career, while helping develop and achieve personal goals.

Attendance at all program events and meetings is mandatory for maximum involvement. The time commitment is for seven one-on-one sessions (date and time to be determined with mentors) during the program year, as well as four program dates.

NOTE: Letters of recommendation will not be considered by the Mentoring Program Selection Committee and should not be submitted.

Once selected we will send you the Commitment Form which is required to participate. All applications and forms must be submitted by the time you start the program.
