YPN is a dynamic and diverse group of young professionals who work to build strong professional relationships, learn from their peers and colleagues, and give back to and get involved within our Capital Region communities.
Nothing is more important to the growth of business or the success of our region than attracting and retaining top talent. The Executive Mentorship Program, presented by YPN, connects ambitious young professionals with high-level business leaders to support each other’s professional and personal development. Since the program’s inception in 2004, we have matched nearly 1,000 young professionals with area leaders; many of whom are still in regular contact with one another today.
Volunteer YPN, the civic engagement subcommittee of YPN’s Program Committee, identifies the needs of Capital Region organizations and develops service events for young professionals to meet these needs and support their community. Volunteer YPN encourages an atmosphere of teamwork and collaboration, which provide informal yet impactful networking opportunities among participants.
