What we're about!
BostonYPA boasts over 5,500 official members, and 31,000 in our LinkedIn group, and over 100 unique events per year. BostonYPA just celebrated 13 years (April 2016) as the number one social and networking organization for young professionals in Boston. We host between 4 and 8 events per month and offer a wide variety of events which will appeal to a wide range of young professionals; whether your interests are networking, learning something new, or finding new relationships - for business, friendship or professional opportunities.
If you are new to Boston or just looking to meet new friends or professional contacts, BostonYPA events are a great place to meet people. You will not feel out of place if you come alone - most people do! Our events include small, intimate special-interest gatherings (the best of our events for meeting new people...) and huge, general social extravaganzas (best for seeing those BostonYPA members you already know!) In organizing these events, we aim to give busy young Bostonians the opportunity to try a variety of activities with their fellow young professionals without having to research and plan the activities themselves. We also strive to maintain our number one priority: creating a community for the young professional in Boston.
Official Members of BostonYPA enjoy complimentary events, and exclusive member only opportunities.
BostonYPA provides the finest in entertainment, networking and professional development opportunities geared towards young professionals.
