Quality of Life Team

Quality of Life Team

About the Team:
The Pensacola Young Professionals Quality of Life Team examines local issues in our community such as poverty, education, health, environment, and housing.

The goal of this team is to identify community conditions affecting quality of life, acquire adequate education on the issues, and determine a plan of action that the Pensacola Young Professionals can pursue in order to make a difference. The QOL Team works closely with many local charities and our area school system.


Message from the Team Chair:
