Mentoring is an essential component of the Program that facilitates the transfer of knowledge, skills and talent from current to incoming professionals. Once selected, each PYP is placed under the mentorship of a seasoned professional for the duration of his/her tenure. During this time, the mentor and PYP are expected to develop a relationship that allows for the grooming, coaching and guiding of the young professional that will allow him/her to flourish into a successful professional.
