Who are VYP Members?
We are a group of individuals at various stages in our lives and careers looking to make an impact on Vermont. We are Vermont’s thinkers, doers, and dreamers.
Vermont Young Professions embraces the notion that a multiplicity of cultural heritages, lifestyles and worldviews brings new perspectives to our work, increases our creativity, and causes us to question outmoded assumptions. Enhancing diversity is both an organizational and a service imperative.
Why was VYP created?
The founders of VYP sought an organization for young Vermont professionals to call their own. They wanted an entity that could help new graduates find strong networks for guidance and socializing; that could help new Vermonters get "plugged into" their communities; and that could help the next generation of Vermonters inherit and lead the state. After recognizing that these interests were not unique to themselves, the founders created VYP in the spring of 2009.
