There is no better way to get to know your community around you than to give back to it. The opportunity to give back not only improves the quality of life in the Upper Valley, but also helps us as individuals to feel connected to our community as a whole. As young professionals we believe that we have a unique opportunity to do our own part in helping to shape our community into the place that we want to continue to live and work in for our own generation and for those to come. The Upper Valley Young Professionals gives back to the local community by supporting local groups, causes and businesses in the Upper Valley, in both New Hampshire and Vermont. For example, our members staffed a water stop at the CHaD (Children Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock) HERO, and have to made this an annual tradition.

There are numerous things we can do to give back both big and small and we are always welcome to members’ ideas on their favorite ways to do so. You can see upcoming Impact events on our events page and see all events, future and past, on our Facebook Event page.
