“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others.”
YPOS prides itself on being a little bit different. Our founder started YPOS with the intent to provide an inclusive, accessible alternative to existing (boring) young professional groups. A few short years later, the organization has grown to be the largest of its kind on the west coast.
With that growth came a responsibility to the community and its citizens – a responsibility beyond basic networking. YPOS has become a landing pad for professionals, at various stages in their careers, looking for social and professional connections, a relevant media outlet, and point of access to businesses and mentorship.
Now, through YP Impact, YPOS provides an opportunity for local professionals to create measurable, lasting impact on the community we live, work and play in.
YP Impact is the charitable arm of YPOS, founded through a partnership with United Way Emerging Leaders (United Way of King County’s program for young professionals who want to make a difference in the local community). We firmly believe in strength through collaboration and, together, plan to increase the impact young professionals can have on the City of Seattle.
