We're in the process of launching a Detroit chapter (Young Professionals of Detroit Metro) and are looking for volunteer team leaders to help us carry out our mission through event programming.

An organization built for the community; lead by the community...

A Little More About the Role:
YPCommunities is run by passionate leaders who volunteer their time to create stronger, more connected communities - a vital link between our organization and the communities we serve.

Team members (or Ambassadors) advocate for our regional chapters within their workplaces, organizations, educational institutions, and local communities, while also representing the interests and perspectives of these entities within our organization. This bilateral responsibility involves collaborating on event planning, promoting engagement with our initiatives and events and conveying the needs and perspectives of communities we serve, affiliated companies, organizations or schools to ensure alignment with our mission and existing programming.

Team members from chapters across the US collaborate regularly so each chapter has access to resources needed to run a successful chapter.

About YPCOMMUNITIES

Location:

Mission Statement

Mission: YPCommunities bridges people to communities and resources by curating tailored, inclusive experiences and tools that connect, educate, and empower. Vision: A world where every person feels a sense of community, inclusion, and belonging, and can access the career and community resources they need to thrive. Mission Statement: YPCommunities promotes a culture free from bias, discrimination, oppression, and injustice. We are dedicated to removing institutional and system barriers that result in oppression, racism, and discrimination.

Description

YPCommunities, the largest young professional network in the US, bridges the gap between people, resources, and their respective communities. We do this by applying a simple philosophy to the way we mobilize and engage with members of the community: be inclusive, be intentional, and be responsive.

YPCommunities programming is comprised of three general segments Social, Professional Development, and Community Impact; each with a data-driven focus on the most relevant needs that connect people, resources and their communities.

What started as a locally held, independently managed event series, has evolved into a 501(c)3 platform responsible for facilitating personal connection, professional growth and social impact while building and connecting communities across the country.
