Young Professionals Collaborative
The Young Professionals Collaborative started in 2014 with the intention to give young people a chance to help out in the San Diego community. The group is composed of San Diego’s young professionals ages 21 to 35 who believe the cycle of homelessness can be broken.
Please join us for monthly meetings every 3rd Friday of the month. Look for YPC signage.

Events & Fundraising
In June 2015, the members of the Collaborative formed a team for Father Joe’s Villages’ TOWERthon and climbed up 20 flights of stairs all morning. Members raised more than $1,100.
All Young Professionals Collaborative members are extended various volunteer opportunities—anything from serving meals to planning fundraising events. We even have some fun plans in the books for 2016, like regular happy hours.
