We Are

THE YOUNG PROFESSIONALS' GROUP

Who We Are

The Young Professionals’ Group (YPG) is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization established in 2000 to provide financial support through character-based scholarships, guidance and advice, and mentorship to college and university students. 

Our Mission

Encourage and empower young adults to realize their potential and pursue their dreams.

We do this through character-based scholarship and mentorship.

Values At Our Core

Values are at the core of everything we do, and define our purpose.

We see POTENTIAL in each of our students and it's what we seek to expand to its fullest. By bringing our DREAMS closer, we can further our impact in the world. But we can't do it alone, RELATIONSHIPS matter and that's why we call YPG a family. Never forgetting of course that there's PLAY beyond work, and we can't collectively have impact if we don't have fun and enjoy doing what we do.

Our Heroes

We call our mentors and advisors "Heroes" for a reason. Not only have they proven they have superpowers, but they help cultivate our Rising Stars as well! Beyond providing career guidance, they also focus on cultivating character and career potential.

Advisors can be professionals you connect with once or twice. Mentors are usually committed to a longer term relationship with the Rising Star over time. It is up to both the Mentor and Rising Star (Mentee) to define their relationship.

Mentors can connect students with a broader network of advisors, as well as facilitate internship opportunities. And by connecting to our global network of Heroes ranging from CEOs to Ministers of State to experts across industries, our Rising Star students can have access to priceless guidance and advice towards their present and future development.
