YOUNG PROFESSIONALS COMMITTEE (YPC)

The YPC seeks to open doors of opportunity for the young people of Queens. Through a combination of volunteerism, networking and philanthropy, members work to ensure great futures for the 4,000 children served each year. 

To support the Club's wide range of youth development programs, the YPC hosts fundraising events and bridges connections to corporate partnerships. As a collective, we expand and enhance the Club's network to provide more resources to the young people in our community. 

The committee recruits new members throughout the year and welcomes your participation. For more information, please click below and we will reach out to you.
