In 2004, the Chamber and the United Way of Central Florida partnered together to provide a meaningful outlet for young professionals to build relationships, find professional development opportunities and ultimately engage in the Lakeland community. Seven years later, EMERGE is nearly 200 members strong and is the recognizable expert on young professional life in Lakeland.
One of the most beneficial programs that the Steering Committee has sanctioned is P2P. With three years of success behind them, EMERGE is looking for “Class 4″ to take them into the future. P2P is Peer2Peer networking, relationship building & a whole bunch of Lakeland information jam-packed into 10 months.
The biggest win of the P2P program is that young professionals meet other young professionals. Mentors are EMERGE Lakeland members who are engaged & committed to the Lakeland community. They serve on boards, lead EMERGE activities, are active in civic groups and business organizations, and most of all they love Lakeland.
P2P is looking for young professionals that are new to Lakeland or have recently returned to Lakeland. This outstanding opportunity will introduce participants to the social, professional, political and philanthropic activities in Lakeland, and will provide more than one way to get involved.
The program begins in August, so be sure to complete your application today! Visit EMERGELakeland.com for more information or to download the application.
