Why Join YYP

How involved in YYP you become is totally up to you.


More than 140 members representing 90-plus area companies and organizations make up York Young Professionals, giving you the opportunity to get to know some of York’s most active citizens.

Monthly Socials

Join us the third Thursday of each month as we gather at some of York’s hottest places, iconic places or places you never knew existed. It’s a low-pressure way to meet new people or catch up with fellow members. Each social includes free food and drinks.

Professional Development

Learn from York’s brightest during events like “Meet the Executive: Conversations with our Community Leaders” or work together with other YYP members at our regular “Leads” meet-ups.

Outreach Opportunities

From our annual professional-clothing drive to our Habitat for Humanity build, join other YYP members as we work together to make York a better place not just for us, but for the entire community.

YYP Meet-Ups

Looking for something to do? YYP members regularly meet up to check out new establishments, grab dinner at city restaurants or catch movies or local plays together.

YCEA access

Our partnership with the York County Economic Alliance gives our members access to many of YCEA’s member-only events and meet-ups.

Annual Foot Rally

YYP members may compete for free in the annual Foot Rally, a city-based scavenger hunt that’s been called “York’s Amazing Race.” Teams can win prizes, and everyone gets free brunch afterward, too.

YWCA York Discount

YYP members are eligible for the Corporate Discount Program at YWCA York. Discounts apply to the Early Learning Center, School Age Learning Centers, Before and After School Programs, Summer Camps, and Fitness Center.

Make friends

Whether you've lived in York your whole life or are new to the area, YYP offers regular opportunities to hang out with people your age and who share your interests.

Nikki Brandt Murray Securus

I like the ability to network and get to know people in a casual, fun setting. Successful business networking starts by building friendships first, and YYP is a great place to do that.

Adam Nugent York Revolution

YYP engagements lead to friendships. Friends who attend YYP events are professionals. Professionals in our small town constantly work together. YYP gives me the opportunity to work with friends.

Jody Chesla Downtown Inc

The connections that you will make through YYP will last. At my very first YYP event I met a future coworker and a now-successful realtor who was just starting out. It's awesome to connect with peers.

Rebecca Hanlon Our York Media

When we started our business, YYP was full of people who helped us. We met our attorney and accountant and built relationships with people who became clients. The best part: They're all friends.

Mike Pritchard York County Planning Commission

If you're new or newly returning to the area, YYP is an easy way to get involved and get to know what's going on.

Laurin Gross Rudy Art Glass

The two best aspects of YYP are the friendships I've made and the opportunity to experience new places around town. It's also a very low-pressure way to learn how to successfully network.

Gretchen Kowalik MRG Laboratories

I love all the friends I've made and how the group has introduced me to all the benefits of being downtown!

Gerrit Strathmeyer Ground Roots

Because of the relationships I'm building our company is gaining more business and opportunities simply by word of mouth.

Karin Swartz York Country Day School

I recommend YYP to everyone. It is a fantastic opportunity to meet people with different interests and skills all across York.
