When the Hype Steering Committee first polled the membership about what type of events they wanted to see in their Young Professionals organization, we couldn’t believe the demand for programming that encouraged civic and service-minded engagement with the community. Young professionals really LOVE Manhattan! And they really want to show it by helping organizations that matter.
The #LoveMHK team was born of this outcry for more opportunities for philanthropy, civic opportunities and activities that celebrate what makes Manhattan such a wonderful place to work and live. The team has put together events to help young professionals give back, through planned area clean-ups and trips to the animal shelter. We are also helping guide our members to leadership opportunities in the community with a Board Member 101 Training Session next fall. Our members can also show their love for Manhattan by attending “A Trip to the Beach” next month to get involved with the local art scene.
Our team plans to help every Hype member celebrate their city with updates about volunteer opportunities as well as fun events that promote community engagement with local businesses and outdoor attractions, whether it’s gathering to walk the vendor strip at a Third Thursday on Poyntz or a trip to Wildwood for some ziplining. We want to keep everyone loving MHK!
