The Community & Civic Engagement Committee is a group of passionate people eagerly working to make Erie the best place to live, work, learn, and play. The committee is responsible for engaging YEP members in community events, civic leadership, and providing a space for young adult voices.
Here are some of the ways our YEP members connect with the Erie community.

Thank you for your interest in including members of Young Erie Professionals (YEP) in your volunteer opportunity! YEP's Community & Civic Engagement Committee reviews project submissions on a quarterly basis and chooses one project from those submitted in which to engage our members. If your project is not chosen, we will still share your opportunity with our members, though we cannot guarantee YEP member involvement.
*Submitted projects must align with the YEP mission and goals:
YEP Mission: Young Erie Professionals provides opportunities for its members to develop professionally and participate in the community while connecting, attracting, and retaining young talent.
Please note: All submissions require a YEP member sponsor. The YEP Sponsor ensures your project aligns with YEP's mission and goals and acts as the project liaison. We encourage you to submit your project prior to the deadline listed.
