We are PYP
June was a busy but productive month for PYP!
Many of our members participated in the Children’s Home Society Youth Works Program Teen Job Fair – assisting teens with updating resumes and filling out job applications; our members witnessed our local democracy in action during the monthly Pensacola City Council Meeting; we joined together for some corn hole fun, while raising money for the Escambia County Head Start; and Daniel Pennington graciously taught us key public speaking power tips and how to communicate our “why” during a public speaking training session.
Thank you to all of our members, sponsors, and guests who joined us for these amazing events. July is shaping up to be great month as well! Join us on July 18th for the LinkedIn Workshop and on July 27th for the “Sweet Treat” Networking Night. Stay up-to-date on our events through our Facebook page, the PYP Members Only Facebook Group, or on our website! Don’t miss these fantastic opportunities!
Have a fantastic July,
Connect. Give. Grow. Live.
