Professional Development: SYP hosts events to increase member's knowledge of community as a whole, along with other informative events with speakers that will aid in their lives as community members and employers/employees in Richland County.
Social Networking: All SYP events have social networking built in. It is our firm belief that in order to grow and sustain young professionals and leaders, we must know one another. What better way to meet and grow your network than in a laid back, professional driven atmosphere?
Service: SYP knows that there are many giving opportunities in our area. Our idea of service is promoting those organizations, as well as filling gaps in giving. Ranging from non-profit fairs highlighting a multitude of different opportunities, to cold weather gear drives for area schools, SYP is working hard to use their professional network to give back to the community.
What is a Young Professional? Sidney Young Professionals believes that anyone who lives in our area and finds that they would like to meet regularly with a group of individuals who value personal growth in their professional lives, expanding their social network and giving back to the community fit perfectly with SYP. We do not care what your profession is, but rather that you share in our values and mission.
SYP meets the second Thursday of each month (September - May) from 6:00 - 8:00 pm. Gatherings are a mixture of social, service, and learning.
