Young Professionals Network

The vision of the Young Professionals Network is to create an organization that will grow in to a vast networking group for 21 to 39 year-olds with a membership that includes representatives from a variety of  Lufkin and Angelina County businesses. It serves to promote local businesses, support philanthropic activities and plan social events - all to encourage the professional development of its members. 

YPN is a great program that enables and encourages young professionals to get involved in all aspects of the community. The program also provides opportunities to meet and network with like-minded individuals. YPN hosts a social happy hour at a different local restaurant monthly. This provides a networking opportunity for members and serves a promotional opportunity for the restaurants.

YPN also has a focus on community outreach and its members strive to make a difference in the community through regular volunteer events. YPN creates and promotes innovative approaches to networking, making friends, reaching out to the community and celebrating the ambitions of young, driven and successful
