    Mequon-Thiensville Young Professionals Committee

    Young Professionals Group Mentors Homestead High School Seniors

    Mequon, WI: On Tuesday, April 27th, 2021, students from Homestead High School’s Business Product Development class taught by Mr. Brandn Lindsey met with members of the Mequon Thiensville Young Professional (MTYP) committee for an hour of mentoring to prepare students entering the professional workforce.

    The event was a part of Mequon-Thiensville School District’s Strategic Plan to “Provide each student with the information, opportunities, and skills needed to understand and access pathways toward their future career aspirations.” In both small-group and large-group formats, students from the class discussed their current end of year projects and plans for the future. Meanwhile, the Young Professionals shared their experiences and insights to better prepare the upcoming graduates for entering the job market.

    Mequon-Thiensville School District’s Matthew Wolf said of the event, “The speakers were extremely successful in conveying to students their experiences and the paths they took to reach their career goals. Hearing the speaker's first-hand journeys helps students better understand what their paths and challenges may look like. It was a great opportunity for the learners and the type of partnership we look forward to continuing with the Chamber and building with other Stakeholders in the community.”

    The MTYP Committee looks forward to continuing their relationship with Homestead High School; with hopes to make this an annual collaboration and foster a mentoring relationship between students and community leaders. According to Mr. Lindsey, “We look forward to continued work with the MTYP organization, in hopes that next year, we’ll be able to hold a similar experience in person.”

    The Mequon-Thiensville Young Professionals committee, part of the Mequon-Thiensville Chamber of Commerce, coordinates networking and volunteer events serving as an introduction for many young professionals into the chamber programs and local business community. The committee explores opportunities to expand programming and value for participating young professionals.
