Mentor with mentee shaking hands

The Wichita Falls Chamber of Commerce and Young Professionals of Wichita Falls have joined together to create an all-new, innovative program called The Circuit. The mission of The Circuit is to develop emerging leaders between the ages of 18 and 40 by focusing on mentorship, community engagement, and professional development. The only cost to participate is your time!

The Circuit will be a game-changer in Wichita Falls.

By Shannon Rogers Coppage

Take a look around.  Scan the horizon.  There are organizations and clubs as far as the eye can see.  Hop on your phone or desktop and all it takes is a few clicks on the keyboard and BOOM.  Instant connection to your heart’s desire.  Or at least that’s how it’s supposed to work, right?  So why do we sometimes feel disconnected in our own city?  This is what makes The Circuit stand out.  Connection, development and action.

Honestly, when it comes down to it, I believe it’s community-oriented goals, striving for better…everything.  A better community, a better understanding of our surroundings and the people in them, and a self that’s one step closer to where I want to be, doing what I want to do in life.

Those are some pretty broad sweeping statements to make, I know.  But hang with me, while we dive right into what are MY top 3 reasons for belonging to The Circuit.

Top 3 Reasons to belong to The Circuit

Mentorship.

What do you want to do with your life?  Are you there right now?  Odds are, if you’re under 40, you’re still striving for that elusive place, trying to discover exactly what that means to you.  I know it’s a question I seek the answer to each day, trying to get a little closer to that moment of self-actualization, finding my place.  With the strong partnership with the Wichita Falls Chamber of Commerce, The Circuit is in a unique position to connect you with leaders in the field YOU want, giving you an incredible opportunity to get to know and learn from those who may have already traveled the path you find yourself walking down now, and come out on the other side.  What helped them?  What made their experience better or worse?  Looking back, what would they have done differently?  We tend to look for the answers to those questions ourselves, but don’t have the opportunity to build a relationship and ask those questions of those best situated to answer them for us.

Professional Development. 

Through new and existing programming, there’s something to fit your needs.  BOSS, Wake Up Wichita Falls, Business After Hours are some excellent existing staples, and The Circuit has new lineups designed to feed your professional and personal interests.

Finding your voice. 

Stand up and be heard in YOUR community.  Sometimes the path to being heard can seem like a labyrinth, with many confusing twists and turns.  How effective is it really?  The Circuit brings their ‘A’ game here.  First, there are the “closed-circuit” action teams, including Bike Wichita Falls, Lake WIchita, Intern Wichita Falls, Modern Schools, and Downtown Wichita Falls.  Maybe, more importantly, there’s a presence and a voice at community-wide public meetings.

Stand up.  Connect.  Learn.  Be Heard.  It all starts with The Circuit.  I’ll see you there.”
