I recently joined YPA, this past summer, and I am so happy I did. The group is so welcoming and it is so nice to meet and network with community members who have my same passion, insight, and goals. Events are always being planned and posted on the YPA Facebook page and website, which makes it so easy to get involved and learn about cool things going on around town. My first event I attended, I felt very intimidated going into it. I went alone and told myself I was at least going to meet one new person. Turned out, I met and spoke with almost everyone there. Everyone was so welcoming and excited to have new friends attending. It was truly refreshing and inspiring. This is a wonderful group of people who are really doing a wonderful thing for the area; from volunteer work to brainstorming- it's amazing.
