The Young Emerging Professionals - An Introduction

Did you know there is a networking group for people in their 20's and 30's who live or work in the Valley? Get to know the Young Emerging Professionals.

Isn’t your time to emerge?

The Young Emerging Professionals (YEP) is a committee of the Greater Valley Chamber of Commerce for the young professionals that live and work in the Lower Naugatuck River valley.

What is YEP?
Until recently, there were very few organized opportunities that catered to the social or professional needs of the young professionals in our area. Thanks to some dedicated people, the Young Emerging Professionals was created to fill this void.

The Young Emerging Professionals (YEP) of the Greater Valley Chamber of Commerce represent the interests of the region’s young professionals. YEP’s efforts concentrate on business and career development and networking, social and cultural involvement, and community activism with the goal of connecting young professionals to our community to ensure that the region is the premier place to live, work and play. After all, they are the leaders of tomorrow. – www.youngemergingprofessionals.com

Connect. YEP makes it easy to build a strong professional and social network. If you are in your 20’s or 30’s, join one of the many community outreach outings, networking events, and career development seminars throughout the year.

Develop. YEP offers a variety of career development seminars and events with local leaders and successful entrepreneurs that are committed to the region’s future leaders.

Support. YEP supports the community through various community outreach programs including volunteering time and raising money. This year, YEP will be hosting Picktoberfest - their third annual Pink Night event.
