Welcome

Thank you for visiting yeperie.org, the online space for the Young Erie Professionals, also known as YEP!

Young Erie Professionals is an organization comprised of young, active, civic-minded professionals committed to making Erie a better place to live, work, and play. The vision of the organization is to empower, engage and connect young professionals, civic and corporate leaders, and community service agencies as part of our collaborative effort that fuels the reinvention of the Erie Region as a progressive, creative and stable economic force. 

Our mission is an organization dedicated to providing its members the opportunity to network professionally with their peers while actively participating in their community and region, with the goal of attracting, retaining and supporting young talent in the local workforce.


The Young Erie Professionals and The Erie Regional Chamber and Growth Partnership announced on November 5th, 2015 that they have merged. Through our new collaboration we will work together to advance the region's efforts in job retention, entrepreneurship, professional development and engagement.
