NextGen Inspire

NextGEN Inspire is led by Colton Welhaven and Abbey Wink.

NextGEN Inspire works with students residing in Billings, Montana to help them build a professional network, offer resources for career development and retain incoming young professionals.

Through Inspire, students at both the high school and college level are invited to mocktail events twice annually. These events, held in the fall and spring, allow students to practice networking with young professionals. Additionally, many students arrange job shadow and/or internship opportunities through their interactions with NextGEN members.

Further, Inspire functions as the liaison between student programming and our NextGEN young professionals. NextGEN members in this group may attend student career and internship fairs, help find internship and job shadow opportunities, serve as career resources for students interested in learning more about a certain pathway, and help those considering Billings as a place to work to learn about and connect to the community.

Inspire does not hold regular meetings, but does often seek volunteers to meet with students for short periods of time. If you’re interested in learning more about inspire, please contact Kelly@BillingsChamber.com.
