As young professionals, we started looking for a group that was more than just happy hours and drinking. We wanted more. We started talking to other young professionals, and found a trend.
The more young professionals we talked to, the more clear it became that the best young professionals organization would give it’s members the opportunity to give back to the community, grow as an individual and meet other young professionals.
We quickly found that social, service and self-development would be the three tiers of our organization.
At the first planning meeting, three people showed: Alexa (our founder) and two others. One of the two never came back and Brian Stafford, the other, is currently our VP of Operations. Together, we laid the foundation for an organization which encouraged innovation and creativity, and the SFYP that you know today was born.
