Pensacola’s young professionals share a passionate belief in our city, and that passion has led many of us to seek a stronger voice in our community…a voice in our future!
Pensacola Young Professionals is a group of diverse young professionals working together to showcase the Pensacola Bay Area as a spectacular place to live, work, and play. Motivated by a desire to promote positive change in our community, PYP provides its members with valuable opportunities to build relationships with community and business leaders and to participate in the political, economic, and cultural development and direction of our city.
Formed in 2006 by a volunteer board of directors, PYP has grown enormously and now gives young professionals a powerful voice for affecting change in the Pensacola Bay Area. PYP seeks to work hand-in-hand with current community and business leaders to learn from their experiences and to create a young-professional-friendly atmosphere, so that our region can not only retain young talent but also attract it.
PYP is all about our members and we encourage them to get actively involved. Although we do provide many networking opportunities, we are not simply a group for socializing. Pensacola Young Professionals is passionate about making a difference! Our members care deeply about the community, and through its many volunteer hours, PYP has supported numerous local causes and worthy charities. PYP also works hard to educate its members concerning political and economic topics affecting our area, so that young professionals can speak confidently about our city’s present and future goals. PYP also offers plenty of opportunities for our members to engage in professional development and to achieve positions of leadership within the organization and the community as a whole; we take very seriously our responsibility to cultivate our city’s future leaders.
Whether it be raising money for a good cause, organizing an economic or political forum, helping others grow professionally, or taking a leadership role to drive our community forward, PYP provides young people with the opportunities and support to make our dreams of a better community come true. We hope that you can join us!
