Young Professionals Network
The Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals Network (YPN) is comprised of young entrepreneurs and business professionals within Jefferson County. Through a variety of different programs, YPN helps participants to build business networks and community, share resources and experiences, develop professionally through educational opportunities, combine goals for advocacy, contribute to economic development and leverage influence in the county’s future.
The Chamber and supporting entities like Team Jefferson, believe that creation of a Young Professionals Network is an important investment in the future of Jefferson County. A cornerstone which will attract and retain modern, innovative thinkers who will invest in the area, strengthen the local economy, care for the community, and define Jefferson County’s future with the next generation of leadership.
Make Jefferson County known as the land of local opportunity for young professionals.
Fuel the success of YPN members by providing community-based resources to:
« Connect with peers and mentors
« Inspire creative entrepreneurship
« Engage in local government
« Empower through community leadership

“This is truly a special program. Those of us that have many years of business and life experience are given the opportunity to pass along the knowledge that we gained along the way. What are very clear and obvious decisions for me today was not always the case. Showing a young adult how to achieve a particular goal may be all the confidence boost they need to progress and excel in their career. It is most rewarding to watch a young adult work towards the next level in their career while under under your guidance.
I strongly recommend this program to young professional adults seeking guidance or even validation in their chosen career. I also recommend this program for seasoned adults who want to experience the rewards of seeing a young adult prosper under your tutelage.”
