What we do

& how you can be a part of it all

Our Core Teams

Wether you’re looking to get plugged into the community, volunteer your time, or develop yourself further, PYP has numerous opportunities throughout each month to do so.

In addition to our core events through our Networking, Quality of Life, Economic Development & Government Affairs, and Professional Development teams, we also have teams working in Membership and Marketing to ensure that everything we do with PYP is valuable to our members.

Networking

Our Networking team works to create monthly networking opportunities for our members in various locations around town as well as special events like Blue Wahoos Games or sunset cruises. If you’re looking to meet people or want to help other people meet people, check out what our Networking Team is working on.

 

Community

The Quality of Life team coordinates volunteer opportunities for our members to give their time and talent to area organizations in need. They also look to shine light on areas of need in our community and showcase the good of our community.

The Economic Development & Government Affairs team (affectionally known as EDGA) creates valuable programming educating our members on what’s going on in the community, hosting candidate forums during election years, and coordinating open forums with community partners.

Development

The Professional Development team coordinates opportunities for our members to dive deep into personal and professional development. These events include seminars on resume building, linkedin use, and your personal brand as well as opportunities for specialized training and personal discovery like DISC or enneagram assessments with professional facilitators (just to name a few). The “PD” team also manages our Mentor Pensacola program. If you’re interested in personal and professional growth, or want to help others in their journey, check out what the Professional Development Team is working on.

Community Events

There’s one thing the Pensacola area does not lack and that’s things to do. Festivals, fundraisers, special events, seminars, and activities – you name it. We’ve hand-picked targeted events for you here.

Quality of Life Survey

Since 2008, the Quality of Life Survey has provided insight into how our citizens view our community. As catalysts for positive change in the Pensacola Bay Area, the Pensacola Young Professionals are hopeful that the annual results of this survey will be a useful measurement and tool that will allow Escambia County residents to have a voice and will offer data to local leaders and policymakers seeking to affect change for the benefit of the entire community.

Mentor Pensacola

Originating in 2015, Mentor Pensacola set a new stage for our young professionals to gain valuable mentorship opportunities with local community leaders. We’re thrilled to bring this program back as a partnership with the Greater Pensacola Chamber in 2021.
