MISSION STATEMENT: To cultivate new relationships, develop professionally and support the community.

 

In the midst of a generation drawn to online social networks and online networking groups, Anchorage young professionals have not had an engaged and social network that addresses their specific needs -until now. The answer is the Young Professionals Group.

YPG was created in June of 2014 and is the largest young professional organization in Alaska with over 400 engaged members.

YPG has implemented a variety of different avenues for professionals to develop key business skills and strategies, grow personally and professionally, and provide unique networking opportunities with other motivated and social professionals.
