Urbandale’s Young Professionals Group: genYP
Invest in yourself and expand your network with one of the most highly regarded young professional groups in the Des Moines area. GenYP provides unique opportunities for young business individuals to connect with other emerging leaders through structured networking events, professional development, and community outreach activities.
Some of our featured events include our professional development series taught by local college and university professors and our mentorship program, which connects genYP members with Urbandale Chamber members to exchange valuable advice for professional growth.
GenYP also funds our own community outreach program, “Let’s Read.” Through a partnership with Urbandale’s Olmsted Elementary and Karen Acres, genYP members have a priceless opportunity to read with, guide, and support elementary students (and maybe learn a few things themselves along the way).
