Group Mentoring

Connect with leaders.

Every young professional can benefit from connecting with an experienced and trusted advisor. Finding the right mentor to guide you toward the path to success can take time.

W Group Mentoring connects young professionals and professionals in career transitions and matches them with successful community leaders who serve as small group mentors.

The process takes the guesswork out of finding your mentor match by connecting small groups of W members with accomplished professional mentors in our community who are excited to support, lead, and develop the next generation of leaders!

Mentors and their small groups become tight-knit communities as they meet monthly to strengthen connections, gain valuable insights from both mentors and peers, and learn firsthand from some of Wichita’s most visible leaders.

Whether you’re new to your 9-to-5 or you’ve got some experience under your belt, Group Mentoring provides fresh perspectives and a community of support.
