The leadership committee encompasses all the committees in VYP, leadership gets together to discuss upcoming VYP events, philanthropic outreaches, educational opportunities in the community, and how to reach more businesses; to get them involved and feel welcome. The Leadership meetings also go over budget and membership for the past month. This committee meets the first Wednesday of every month from 11:30-1pm at various restaurants. Check the calendar for location. This is a great meeting to share ideas and contribute to making VYP great!
The education committee provides educational resources for its members including educational classes, speaking opportunities, and teaching opportunities. The educational classes are on a different topic the committee feels is important for the age group to learn. Speaking opportunities involve speaking at one of the classes and if you are interested in teaching high school students, we have that too. These are all great experiences to add to a resume!
This committee meets to plan and coordinate the monthly mixers VYP holds. creative minds are encouraged to attend as it coordinates different venues, networking activities and themes for the mixer. Being part of the events committee allows one to build relationships and work with different business owners around the community.
The A-Team is dedicated to welcoming new members and working on member retention. The committee is continuously thinking of ways to improve VYP member participation, introducing and connecting new members with others, and calling members who we have not seen for a while.
The Philanthropy committee collaborates and talks about where to focus our efforts during the Leadership meeting, to choose a charity to support each month and collaborate on different ways to fundraise and/or volunteer our time. VYP also works on its yearly project with Oak Grove Center For Education, Treatments, and room decoration.
