Burlington Young Professionals sees an emerging and diverse workforce as a competitive advantage for Burlington’s growing economy. As a leading voice for our community’s young professionals, BYP collaborates with local businesses that share its commitment to attracting and retaining young professional talent and empowers young professionals with all business relationships, education and community awareness necessary to become an active community leader.
BYP was founded in 2010 as a program of the Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce as part of its mission to develop, attract, and retain a talented workforce, and support future business and community leaders. The LCRCC saw a direct need in the community to create a cohesive network for aspiring, young professionals to network, professionally develop and become civically active.
As a young professional, you have the luxury of developing relationships and growing your career in a welcoming environment of your peers.
As a LCRCC member business, you are supporting your young professional talent with the resources they need to excel both personally and professionally.
BYP supports an emerging workforce through creative event programming. Some of our signature programs include:
- BYP Seminar Series
- Professional Mentorship Program
- Annual Kicks for a Cure kickball tournament
- Luncheons with business leaders
A beacon for curated social capital and relevant professional benefits, BYP strives to connect our young professionals to new job and volunteer opportunities.
