Benefits of Joining a Networking Organization

Pittsburgh Young Professionals is the oldest young professionals organization in the region. With over 600 members in fields ranging from business and legal to non-profit and healthcare, this organization offers a diverse, tight-knit community. The group is deeply rooted in Pittsburgh. In fact, Mayor Peduto declared October 2 as Pittsburgh Young Professionals Day in 2018. 

One of the best things about PYP is the number and variety of events they host. With around 50 events per year, they hold events all around the city. It’s one reason why PYP made our list of the best networking groups in Pittsburgh

Between networking events, dinner parties, professional development events, speaker series, and charitable opportunities, there’s a lot to get involved with when you’re part of PYP.
