Shawnee Young Professionals


Founded in 2015 as a program of the Shawnee Chamber, the Shawnee Young Professionals (SYP) provides valuable and comprehensive opportunities for young professionals through networking events, education, and mutual support. 

We strive to be the catalyst that allows young professionals to make measurable and significant impacts in both their personal and professional lives, as well as in our community. 

Our mission is simple: engage and empower the next generation of leaders who are committed to their own personal growth, and the growth of the community.

2018 Partnership Opportunities:

The Shawnee Young Professionals program is dependent upon corporate and community funding to ensure the growth and sustainability of the program and its mission. Financial or in-kind support is vital to providing well-balanced and valuable opportunities for young professionals to make significant impacts in both their personal and professional lives. Our initiatives would not be possible without the support of the local business community.
