YEP Sponsorship

Young Erie Professionals would not be possible without the generous support of our local sponsors. There are a variety of ways for your business to engage with our members and support our mission of helping emerging leaders develop professionally while actively participating in the community.

Benefits of a YEP Sponsorship

  • Exposure to local young professionals—your business will be promoted widely to our 200+ members.
  • Customize your Sponsorship—choose from one of many sponsorship opportunities, from one-time event sponsorships to annual sponsorships.  We will work with you to determine the best fit for your goals and budget.
  • Promote Erie—all YEP events and programs support our mission to connect, attract, and retain young talent in our local workforce.  Choose an event that aligns with your own mission and values to make the most of your investment.

Sponsorship Opportunities

  • Annual Sponsorship: our annual sponsors ensure the ongoing success of our program and help YEP to engage more emerging local leaders.
