Each of the TYP chapters hold monthly networking socials that showcase 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 noble, community-oriented purpose. We have made every effort to create a safe, engaging environment based on goodwill and meaningful conversation. As we foster an environment where business relationships and friendships can be nurtured, peers can commiserate, ideas can be shared and businesses can be launched.
