For WTS-OC, these goals are realized in part through our Mentoring Program, which matches up-and-coming transportation professionals and college students whose studies focus on transportation with an accomplished industry professional. 

Throughout the term of the program, the Mentoring Committee provides structure and support to help foster the one-on-one mentoring relationship, and also hosts group activities and professional development workshops.
