Catalysts for Change
We CONNECT young professionals with like-minded individuals through regular networking nights and programming designed to strengthen relationships.
We GIVE our time, talents, and treasure to build a vibrant community through partnerships with local nonprofits and volunteer service projects. We VALUE developing our community through education and action.
We commit to GROW as leaders by investing in personal and professional development opportunities within PYP and within our greater community.
Pensacola Young Professionals was created in 2006 to be a voice for the young pros of Pensacola. We started with taking a stand on the Maritime Park initiative and have made it our mission to be catalysts for positive change ever since.
PYP connects the dots between our members’ goals and the opportunities available to them in the Pensacola Bay area. Whether a member is interested in professional development, community service, local economic development and governmental affairs, or just looking for a networking opportunity, PYP offers all of those connections. PYP’s goal is to connect members to the opportunities our community offers that are most meaningful to them so that each person can find their best “fit”.
