How do I get more involved?
There are a couple of ways to get MORE involved than just participating in local events, but first, please make sure you've, at least, joined the community and completed your profile.
You can apply to join an existing team and someone will reach out as opportunities arise.
Become a Community Leader and start a local Community.
Support HQ - our HQ is in Seattle, but we operate in a virtual world.
Is there a cost to join?
There is no cost to join the community! 90%+ of our events are free of charge for Community Members; the ones that aren't free are fundriasers.
I RSVP'd to an event that I can no longer attend. How do I cancel?
We use Eventbrite for just about all of our events. If the event you registered for is hosted on Eventbrite, simply:
Go back to the order confirmation in your inbox for that specific event
Click "View and manage your order online"
On the pop up, click "Cancel Order".
There isn't an event near me, does it still make sense to join?
Absolutely! While we connect people through live, in-person events, we're also a digital platfom that allows (encourages) people to connect across communities.
Further, we publish a newsletter, to the nationwide community, with updates on what's going on in the young professionals everywhere. So even if we're not yet in a city near you, you can still engage.
Now, if you're interested in being a Community Leader and bringing YPC to a town near you, let's talk! We've made it pretty easy to get start a Community of your own.
I see the event page says that your event is "Sold Out", Is there any chance I can still attend?
Sorry, if the event page says SOLD OUT, we are indeed sold out or at capacity. :(
Is there an age limit?
How do I sponsor an event?
We don't do sponsorship, per se. Instead, we look at companies supporting young professional communities as Partners.
I need to hire young professionals. Can YPC help with that?
Yup! We're tied directly to a diversity staffing agency, that manages all of our hiring integrations.
I have an event I need to share, can YPC help promote?
YPCommunities consists of various, preformatted event types but we're designed to be a landing pad of sorts for young professionals to find the resources they need.
If you're interested in having us design a custom event for you, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I host a YPC event at my venue / business?
It's certaintly possible...
