The Burlington Young Professionals Group (BYP) is made up of Vermont's most passionate, authentic and driven future leaders. Our goal is to create a meaningful, cohesive network in which aspiring professionals can meet, gain career enhancement skills, and explore ways to give back within our community. Modern young professionals crave more than an old fashioned seminar or another dry lead exchange gathering, which is why we continually strive to re-engage young professionals by catering to a diverse array of ever-shifting needs.

The BYP's mission is to help revitalize Vermont's economy and society based on the founding principle that people are at the heart of what makes businesses and communities work well. The Young Professionals Group provides a platform for participants to build relationships, develop professionally, become politically and philanthropically active, and contribute to economic development and a high quality of life in our community.

"Throughout my career, I have been surrounded by wonderful people who encouraged me to pursue my dreams, who challenged me to think differently and who supported me through success and failure. I am thrilled for the opportunity to pay this forward by providing insight, inspiration and support to our next generation of leaders.  I have no doubt that I have as much to learn from them, as they do from me." - Sara Byers, President, Leonardo's Pizza
