Overview:

The YPE Dallas Mentor program matches Young Professionals in Energy members (“YPE Mentors”) with energy focused students and recent graduates (“Mentees”) in the DFW area to initiate and encourage constructive relationships within the energy industry. YPE Mentors counsel Mentees throughout a Fall/Spring schedule of educational and networking events to build a personal and professional connection from which all participants will benefit. Due to COVID-19, the Mentor Program events and meetings will initially be held virtually. YPE Dallas will provide updates on the meeting schedule throughout the year.

Guidelines & Expectations:

 YPE Mentors:

  • 100% attendance encouraged. Commit to attending events with your Mentee and engage in follow-up discussions regarding takeaways from each event. YPE Mentors are encouraged to commit to connecting with Mentees a minimum of six times over the course of the program through either YPE Events or virtual meetings.
  • Call or email Mentees to further establish the relationship.
  • Keep the discussions productive with strong listening skills and constructive feedback.
