United Way of Marion County Supports Marion Young Professionals

Marion Young Professionals is an organization of professionals (20s, 30s, 40s) that live and/or work in Marion County. Our goal is to build a network out of our members, comprised of young professionals who are interested in Making Marion County a great place to live and work. We create opportunities for young professionals to network with other peers who are also interested in having a positive impact on Marion County.

One of the ways we do this is by organizing a slate of monthly activities focused on volunteering, professional development, and networking.

United Way of Marion County acts as the Fiscal Agent for Marion Young Professionals.

Hello MYP members!!
There are a couple of events coming up that need volunteers, and I was hoping we could support them by helping out.

**We have shirts and/or hats to wear to these events, which helps to promote who we are and what we do.

**Head over to the Volunteer Portal Page on Facebook to view them. We will follow up soon.

***This group is only a success if we show support to the community, as well as each other!***

Thanks y'all

🤩🤩 Thanks, MarionMade!!Get Connected with Marion YoPro
There are MarionMade! people all around us, and Marion YoPro is one of many community groups that bring those people together. Marion YoPro (young professionals) is a group of individuals in their 20s, 30s, and 40s who work or live in Marion County. The YoPros have three primary goals: connecting professionals with their peers, offering opportunities to develop professionally, and connecting people to the community through volunteering and other activities.

You might see YoPro members volunteering at different community events, such as Third Thursdays, or some of the different booths at the Popcorn Festival. If you find yourself out on the town for lunch or dinner, Marion YoPro meets at a different restaurant for dinner on thesecond Wednesday, and for lunch on the third Wednesday, every month. You can support a local business while relaxing outside of the office!

YoPro members come from all different sectors, including business, nonprofit, and others. Many of our members had the good fortune to be a part of the Chamber of Commerce leadership program, and those community action values are reflected in our mission. Ultimately, this mission is to build connections across different professional sectors, and in doing so, diversify our community interactions and engagement. Marion YoPro is all about making Marion County a place where we can all live, work, and play!

Would you allow a 16 yr old to volunteer at the popcorn festival? She’s trying to get service time for her HOBY organization.
