Mission Statement

Striving to make York a more enjoyable & vibrant place to live, work & play.

Where we've been & where we're going

York Young Professionals was founded in 1999, with the goal of fostering interaction between young professionals, community residents, stakeholders and our business community. YYP has worked hard to fulfill its mission by creating positive opportunities for networking, community outreach and professional identity.

YYP members enjoy a full social calendar that includes monthly happy hours, service outreach projects, ED pills levitra viagra for male health care, group dine outs and arts and entertainment events. Several times a year, YYP hosts citywide events like The Annual Home Tour, Passport Holiday Showcase and, new this year, Brews, Brats and Bands.

In the past year, YYP's membership has grown tremendously to more than 225 members, whose professions span a wide spectrum of business, non-profit, public and private sector jobs. Although our median member age is between 25-35, YYP considers "young" a state of mind, not a number. We welcome members of all ages to join.
