NextGen Mentoring Program


The NextGen Mentoring Program is a cornerstone of AMP’D and its mission of attracting emerging professionals to engage, develop, and serve in Douglas County. 

Young professional mentees are connected with an accomplished professional from a broad array of commercial, nonprofit, and government backgrounds. Mentors help shape a young professional’s future by sharing your knowledge and providing a firsthand glimpse of life and work in Douglasville and Douglas County. At the conclusion of the program, mentors and mentees often find that the learning has been mutual and that the relationship has grown in ways not foreseen at the start.

Applications for the program will be available in Fall 2020. Please contact the Chamber at 770.942.5022 for more information.

Interested in Getting Involved in AMP'D?

I admit I was initially skeptical about joining AMP’D. It was completely out of my comfort zone, but it seemed too good of an opportunity to pass up. A year after I joined, I had the opportunity to join the Board of Directors. I enjoy serving on Team Attract. I enjoy the engagement with team members, working with and learning from them, and involvement in community events. Through various events, I have developed my networking skills, made meaningful community connections, and gained experience in social media, marketing and event planning, among other skills. I’m beyond grateful to the Chamber for providing such an interactive and immersive program like AMP’D for young professional growth! Major key alert!
