The AGBU Young Professionals (YP) is a growing network of groups and individuals around the world who aim to connect with like-minded peers in varied settings. With close to 40 groups in as many cities across the globe, it has become the premier forum for Armenians between the ages of 22 to 40 to congregate for diverse events ranging from thought-provoking seminars, community service activities, conferences, fundraisers, exhibitions, networking and mentorship programs and more. In short, AGBU Young Professionals is the largest, global network of its kind bringing young Armenians together from all walks of life to serve the greater good.
Making a difference for twenty years, the YP movement began in 1995 with the first group in Los Angeles with the second metropolitan location launching shortly thereafter in Northern California. We are proud to also host a presence in Arizona and Texas (Houston) in the Western Region. Learn more about each one and their activities!
Inspiring young professionals to get involved and stay involved, the YP Network has earned an international reputation for fostering a sense of community and belonging thanks to its open-door policy. Civic-minded and benevolent, AGBU YP Groups and Partners devote their time, expertise, and leadership to make Armenian communities thriving, better places to live by:
- Engaging thousands worldwide through educational, cultural, and social events and activities;
- Investing in Armenia and locally by fundraising for worthwhile initiatives; and
- Harnessing their collective power through regional and global projects.
An integral part of the AGBU family, the YP Network also works closely with AGBU Districts, Chapters, and Schools on joint initiatives, and participates in signature AGBU and YP events, such as FOCUS, AGBU General Assembly and regionally at the San Francisco Winter Gala.
