about us.

Mission

To attract and retain young professionals by creating opportunities to enable them to better network, socialize and serve our community.


Our History
The idea of a local Young Professionals group in the North Country was created as a group project by the Workforce Investment Board’s North Country Leadership Class of 2007. The class was encouraged to work toward creating a “cool community” – or an area known for its activities and resources geared toward younger generations of up-and-coming professionals. The class started with this idea of a “cool community” and sought to create a group that would retain and attract young professionals to the area through its scenic and recreational resources, volunteer and civic engagements and, of course, serious networking opportunities. The kick-off event for the fledging group was a forum which invited 100 area young professionals to provide input regarding the needs in the region for
young professional representation. This event provided the platform for younger generational leaders and created a buzz which grew from the original 10 planners of the event to over 200 interested young professionals, who now represent the formalized “Adirondack Young
Professionals” —ADKYP.

 

Why Become Involved in ADKYP?
The attraction and retention of young professionals to the region is a key economic development issue. ADKYP exists to support the networking of young professionals, in all stages and types of careers. The group is united in growing and serving the community at large.
