The Alliance is a mentorship program that pairs young professionals with mentors, or "allies" from other industries to help introduce them to new opportunities and gain insight into their occupations.
The Alliance is available to all YPL members
Are you an attorney who’s wanted to pick the brain of a farmer? Are you a hair stylist hoping to network with a local day spa? Are you new to the restaurant business looking to learn the industry from some of Lodi’s greatest restaurateurs? Lodi Young Professionals offers a business opportunity to connect Young Professionals with Allies established in the local community.
join the Alliance
If you’re interested in joining The Alliance, submit an intake form to the Alliance Committee. Based on your submission, you will be paired with a local Ally who best suits your goals and requests. Each pair will be encouraged to connect on at least a monthly basis by phone, email, lunch, in the field, industry event or however they decide. It’s completely up to each pair as to what they want to get out of the connection and how they go about the year. At the end of the program, we'll celebrate with each Young Professional and Ally parting ways having gained insight, life lessons and a new professional connection in the community.
