Young Professionals Group
With a mission "to grow, develop and promote economic opportunity for young professionals and entrepreneurs in Flagler County,” the Young Professionals Group of Flagler County (YPG) became part of the Chamber in 2012.
YPG is a dynamic organization that connects, empowers and engages young professionals in Flagler County. YPG members are dedicated to building personal and professional relationships, while also giving back to the community. Its primary fundraisers are the annual Putt Crawl and Farm to Table Dinner. Proceeds from both events are donated to the Youth Leadership Program that provides participating high school students with a better understanding of Flagler County for community improvement purposes.
Up and coming business professionals looking to volunteer, connect and have some fun are encouraged to join the group and attend a monthly social event held the first Wednesday of every month at 6PM. Click here for the application or call the Flagler County Chamber at 386-437-0106. Stay up to date and like the YPG of Flagler County on Facebook.
