It’s been almost two years since the idea came up about starting an organization for young professionals within this community. These groups exist in other areas and have had success connecting like-minded individuals. So, why shouldn’t we have one in our community as well? To answer that question, we should!
It seems as if the over forty demographic is the most visible in our professional community. However, young professionals are on the rise and this group is growing more and more every day. This is why we are taking a “do-over” to get the Mt. Juliet Young Professionals mobilized once again.
What is a Young Professional? A YP is someone in their twenties or thirties who has a desire to have a positive impact on our community. You may be from Mt. Juliet, live in Mt. Juliet, work in Mt. Juliet, play in Mt. Juliet, shop in Mt. Juliet, worship in Mt. Juliet, or all of the above.
As an extension of the Mt. Juliet/West Wilson County Chamber of Commerce, it is our mission to develop individuals both personally and professionally while maintaining a focus on connecting the opportunities and needs of our community with local resources. This means that we strive to help people that have the time, energy, and resources to connect with the people who need those resources.
It’s also our goal to provide opportunities to connect young professionals. On Saturday, October 19th from 11:00am-1:00pm, the MJYP has planned a potluck picnic at Charlie Daniels Park. Bring your family, a dish to share, and meet some great folks. We hope to see you there!
