A Community of Young Professionals, Executives & Entrepreneurs in Texas
WHO WE ARE
Texas Young Professionals is a community of professionals in their 20s to mid-40s across Texas. Our mission is to foster relationship-building, career development, entrepreneurial endeavors and civic involvement among young professionals. The TYP vision is to empower our members to be leaders in business and our local communities.
Texas Young Professionals was formed in January 2009 in Houston, Texas. From the beginning, TYP leveraged social media by creating a LinkedIn forum. As more and more new members began to join TYP, we quickly discovered the possibilities for building a community of young professionals. As we listened to our members, we understood their desire to move beyond social media to in-person relationships and activities.
Texas Young Professionals holds monthly networking socials that benefit local charities. Our social events are designed to build a sense of belonging to a community, as well as being part of something with a high minded purpose. We have made every effort to create a safe, engaging environment based on goodwill and meaningful conversation.
