Workshops & Classes

Starting in 2023, the Events Chair & Committee (with the assistance of other UVYP leaders) will be offering one-off workshops and classes. These events will be similar to our social events, but with a learning component to help UVYP members enhance their financial, civic, and creative lives. We will be testing out these events by organizing about 1 per month.

Examples of potential workshops & classes: path to homeownership workshop, art class, music class, cooking class, improv workshop, advocacy & civic engagement workshop, sustainable living workshop, and more to come!
