The Greater Gainesville Young Professionals is a group of individuals in the Greater Gainesville community between the ages of 21-39. This engagement opportunity will be available to all employees of Chamber organizations for free. Their focus of the program is personal & professional development, creating & strengthening relationships, investing in the community and exploring our beautiful region.
We aim to achieve this through our four pillars – Connect, Thrive, Strive and Discover:
Connect – Providing opportunities for our young professionals to connect with their peers to create and build relationships in our community
Thrive – Providing opportunities to encourage individual growth within our young professionals in order to ensure that they thrive not only in our community but also in their personal and professional lives
Strive – Providing opportunities for philanthropy as well as civic engagement within our community in order to encourage young professionals to become involved and invested in our region
Discover – Providing opportunities to encourage young professionals to explore and become better acquainted with our region so that they may discover what makes them love Greater Gainesville
“We hope to bring our region’s young professionals the best of every opportunity in a collective strive for excellence. I’m so excited to take this journey with a strong group of inspired individuals.”
– Soly Schrack, Chair
