The Chamber Young Professionals Program provides opportunities to build connections, make an impact in our community, and presents opportunities for professional growth. It’s a way to meet with important community leaders and peers while advancing your community knowledge. The knowledge you gain and the connections you make will enhance your understanding of the Lowcountry and how you can make an impact in the community.
Our three key pillars of the program are:
1. Professional Development
2. Connecting with other young professionals
These three pillars lay the foundation of our programming. We have a set meetup the first Friday of each month at Java Burrito Co. for our “First Friday Coffee”. It’s a great opportunity to meet other young professionals in the area. We also invite a non-profit to speak briefly about their organization and its community impact.
Mark your calendars, and join us at our next monthly CYP coffee!
- July 12th – 7:30-8:30 a.m.
- September 6th – 7:30-8:30 a.m.
