Since its inception in January 2015, our Young Professionals with a Purpose organization has been instrumental in uniting a growing demographic in the greater Newburyport area.
Why is this important?
Many young professionals are moving to the area from larger cities and looking for ways to connect with other professionals and also find ways to give back to the community. Those two factors are exactly why this organization was started.
Every other month, a networking event is planned at a local establishment and young professionals from the Newburyport, Amesbury, Salisbury and Haverhill area gather to support a local non-profit and converse with other professionals that share the same interests.
The conversations that come out of these evenings are amazing. Most attendees have "day jobs," but have an interest to start their own company on the side. Others are looking to change careers or go back to school. Some are completely happy in their current situation, but want to expand their network.
The non-profits that are featured benefit from increased exposure to a generation that is very interested in giving back to their community.
