The Traverse City Young Professionals network is a group of community engaged and locally focused young leaders. The TCYP committee emphasizes their efforts towards maximizing the way young professionals connect, serve, and grow within our community. Involvement in the TCYP committee includes a quarterly meeting that highlights local updates from the City of Traverse City, TCAPS, Grand Traverse County, Garfield Township, and the Downtown Development Authority. In addition, the months that don’t include the quarterly meeting the TCYP’s host a “Morning Brew Series” which allows YP’s to talk to local leaders about the areas most pressing topics over their morning coffee.
The committee is comprised of several sub-committees which help bring laser focus to each of their missions. The sub-committees include: YP Connect, Marketing, Junior Achievement Partnership, Volunteering, and the Events. Be sure to contact us for more information about the TCYP program and engagement opportunities within the YP community.

State Theatre Volunteer Program: Are you a movie-lover? Do you enjoy freshly popped popcorn and plush movie theatre seats? If so, then you should consider volunteering with the YPs at the Traverse City State Theatre. We undertake one volunteer opportunity each month (the fourth Tuesday) to give back to the wonderful State Theatre. This offers all volunteers the chance to interact with movie-goers, network with other volunteers and young professionals, and see a great movie at a well-known Traverse City establishment. Not to mention free popcorn, soda and a movie voucher. You can sign up to work the YP shift at the Traverse City Chamber of Commerce Website. See you at the movies!
