US Composting Council pairs up industry professionals for mentoring program
The US Composting Council continues to grow the organics recycling industry with a thirty-one pair, 2020 cohort of mentor mentee pairs.
The program connects mentors with professional business experience in the compost manufacturing and collection industry to participate with a mentee, a young professional college graduate or industry employee over the age of 21 and under 40.
Matches are made by the USCC's Young Professional Mentoring Committee. The matching process this year involved several meetings and discussion of the best pairings for both mentor and mentee.
The annual mentoring period runs from June 2, 2020 through January 31, 2021. Mentor/ mentee pairs choose their own meeting schedule and format (phone, Skype, in person, email etc.) and are encouraged to make an in-person "capstone" meeting.
