YP Lunches provide a regular opportunity for YPs to get to know other YP members in a relaxed, small group setting. The program also rotates members to increase networking with different YPs each month.
YP Coffee Group is a recurring program that provides a socializing and networking opportunity for YPs outside of business hours. Engaging conversations are based on content tailored to professional perspectives or current happenings.
YP Mentoring allows young professionals to connect with distinguished community and business leaders who have expressed interest in sharing their expertise with YPs through mentorships. Hype’s role in this program is to only provide the means for connection and does not oversee the specific mentoring relationship once a connection has been made.
YP Speed Networking is an annual or biannual event where several YPs gather and “speed network.” Two YPs sit together and cover the basics of their professional life in the span of a few minutes. After a brief conversation, groups rotate. This repeats until everyone in the room has connected. Afterward, the room is open for conversations among participants.
The Hype crew is an ambassador group for Hype. They play a critical role in greeting, engaging, connecting, and conversing with new and existing YP members at Chamber and YP events. Hype crew members must know about all of Hype’s programming and connect new members to those programs.
