National Association of Women Business Owners Ventura County Launches Mentor Program

Seeking college seniors, graduate students and young professionals in first five years of business

Ventura County, CA The Ventura County chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners has announced a new mentoring program for college seniors, graduate students, and young professionals who are in their first five years of business.

“This valuable program is designed to connect aspiring young women entrepreneurs with successful and inspiring women business owners throughout the county and is ideal for those looking to develop and grow their business skills,” stated Kamie Abraham, NAWBO-VC mentor program coordinator and Certified Financial Planner® for Sagemark Consulting in Westlake Village, California.

Mentees are carefully selected and matched with appropriate NAWBO Ventura County mentors, ideally whose business is in the mentee’s industry or major, to ensure mutual goals and satisfaction. Mentor–mentee relationships will last formally for a period of one year with a minimum of four one-on-one meetings. At the end of a year, mentees can apply for different mentors, move on from the program, and/or continue the relationship informally.

“We are thrilled that our chapter has begun offering small group educational opportunities for members and young professionals,” said Elaine Hollifield, NAWBO Ventura County president and owner of Hollifield Creative. “Between this mentor program and our new mastermind program, our chapter is demonstrating a commitment to help business women in our community achieve personal and professional growth with tangible results.”
