  • Young Professional Group

  • The New Bern Young Professionals Group (YPG) is a program designed to create a meaningful network of dedicated, talented young professionals ranging in age 21-40 in Craven County.  YPG’s mission is to create a platform for our members to build relationships, both professionally and personally, to become politically and philanthropically active, and to contribute to the high quality of living in our community.

     YPG hosts monthly events, typically held on the first Thursday of each month from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM, but check our online events calendar for the next event’s date, time, and location.  In addition to these events, YPG also holds monthly Lunch Bunches, as well as various other events throughout the year. 

     One of our largest events, YPG River Jam, allows us to give college scholarships to graduating seniors from Craven County high schools.
