Impact Programs

Community Service

We host regular volunteer opportunities for our members to become active parts of our community, dedicate our time and talents, and assist our partner nonprofits throughout the year. Traditionally called "Service Saturday", you'll often find our team doing beach or Adopt-a-Spot cleanups, making a meal for Ronald McDonald House, or sorting food at Feeding the Gulf Coast.

  • In 2022, PYP adopted Dunwoody Park as our "Adopt-a-Spot" park with Keep Pensacola Beautiful. Every quarter, PYP members visit the park, clean up any trash, and build new relationships.

Community Development

We take time each month to educate our members on what’s going on in the community. Our Community Roundtables highlight community leaders, nonprofit organizations, and small businesses. These programs provide our members with an opportunity to learn about a variety of initiatives and programs in our areas and an opportunity to engage with local leaders and community partners.

Quality of Life

Quality of Life Survey is an independent survey tool that was developed by Mason-Dixon to study communities around the country and evaluate the categories and characteristics that people perceive as having the most impact on the quality of life.

What to Expect

Come with an open mind and positive attitude. You’ll get what you put in and you’ll get more as an active participant.

Education

We’re in the business of educating our members on the latest happenings that are important to our community and our young professionals.
