To help the young professionals of Columbus, Indiana navigate the world of life, work, and the community.
Our vision is to create a network of young professionals in the Columbus area that fosters personal and professional development through relationship building, skill enhancement, community enrichment, and career advancement opportunities. These young professionals form a group of business and community leaders focused on the promotion, attraction, and retention of other young professionals to and in Columbus. We strive to create unique events and offer professional development in hopes that our efforts will make a significant and measurable impact on Columbus as a whole as well as in the professional and personal lives of its members.
