I moved to Pensacola in '05. For about a year, I did everything I could think of to meet new people and network. After many failed attempts I began looking for other places to live. Not long after that, someone told me about PYP. I gave it a shot and it was the best decision I ever made! It gave me the opportunity to feel a part of the community, meet new friends, and help others. I finally feel that I can make a difference in the quality of life of Pensacola just by being a part of something I believe in. I've been a part of PYP for over 4 years now and I may never leave. This organization has given me the opportunity to grow professionally and personally in ways I never imagined. At first, I was hesitant to take on new challenges in my life, but PYP gave me the positive environment I needed to challenge myself. Some of the people I have met in this organization will hopefully be a part of my life for years to come even when my time with PYP is over. Outstanding organization!!!!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
SHEER NUMBERS!!! There are wonderful, dedicated people in this organization and because of this our numbers grow everyday in people that believe in making Pensacola a better place to live, work, and play!
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Streamline the membership process. Possibly only bring in members twice a year.
