What does it mean to be a young professional? Our target audience for our events is 20-40 year-olds living or working in the Upper Valley. However, we welcome near-peers who would like to learn more about our group or hear from younger voices. We define professional as anyone employed or looking for new opportunities. We are an open and welcoming group.

Our goal is to be a resource for young adults in the Upper Valley region of VT/NH who are looking to expand their personal or professional networks. We create opportunities for young professionals to connect with one another and with their community. We aim to be a high-value network of individuals who contribute to our region and make the Upper Valley a place where young people want to stay, work, and play.
