MeckGOP Launches the MeckGOP Mentorship Program

Tonight the MeckGOP launched a new initiative, the MeckGOP Mentorship Program. We will be pairing up College Republicans and Network of enlightened Women (NeW) Republicans with individual local Republican leaders for a mentorship program.

Our first recipient is Sasha Duncan, a senior at UNC Charlotte and the president of the UNCC's Network of enlightened Women. We surprised Sasha with the news at tonight's NeW meeting on the UNCC campus and presented her "adoption" papers.

Sasha will be paired up with MeckGOP Vice Chair Sarah Reidy-Jones through Sasha's graduation. Sasha has already jumped into the local political scene, serving as the new Social Media & Website chair of the Mecklenburg Evening Republican Women (a similar position that Sarah held when first moving to Charlotte!). We look forward to pairing up our other young conservatives with area Republicans with similar interests and creating that early investment in cultivating Republican leaders.

It's important that we provide support to our younger conservatives, giving them valuable mentorship, friendship and financial support throughout their college experience. Many of our college graduates choose to make the Mecklenburg County region their home and we are attracting approximately 120 millennial workers to Charlotte DAILY. It's imperative that we influence youth outreach with our conservative values through action.

If you would like to participate in our MeckGOP Mentorship Program, please contact [email protected] to receive a mentor application. Mentee forms will be directly distributed to our campus conservatives and we look foward to expanding the program to all of our college campuses in Mecklenburg County.
