Young Professionals

The Young Professionals Group is committed to the advancement of the twenty-one to forty-year-old workforce focusing on the development of future business leaders. The group accomplishes this by promoting professional development, networking, community involvement and civic awareness.

The YPG began with an explosive launch with a simple agenda: “To enrich our community by uniting and developing our young professionals.” We invite you to help build upon the momentum by joining this dynamic group.

A Young Professional is a goal oriented individual between the ages of 21-45 with the mind set to pursue a career path. It is not so much the job or vocation that defines the Young Professional as it is the individual’s drive and investment in his or her own future, and consequently the future of the Goldsboro/Wayne County community and our nation as a whole.

The Young Professionals group is the social and professional networking group with goals of contributing to a better Goldsboro and a better you. The YPG is made up of connected, motivated and energetic professionals that will surely make up the future of Wayne County’s leadership. The YPG provides a way for its members to experience more of our great county and be active participants in social, professional and charitable events.

The YPG offers its members an opportunity to be a part of something BIG and a chance to build solid relationships. Whether looking for a new career, ways to expand your client database or simply a chance to make new personal connections, the YPG has something for everyone. Social media is wonderful for connecting with volumes of people but the YPG is the best local group to meet in real life while contributing to positive change in Goldsboro.

Join the YPG to network with other professionals, meet the movers and shakers, experience new and exciting venues throughout our city, and give back to the community.

Get Involved. Get Active. Build Relationships.

The YPG aims to create an exciting and beneficial experience for all its members and this gives us an opportunity to let you know what to expect from our group and how to maximize your membership. We will talk about upcoming events, networking and learn what the YPG has to offer!
