Newton Young Professionals schedules one standard event each month called a Lunch-and-Learn. In addition to a meal and networking, Lunch-and-Learns typically provide time for a not-for-profit organization to address the group briefly, followed by a civic or business leader who facilitates an educational or professional development time with question-and-answer at the end.
In addition, any given month may include separate events for NYP members as well. This might be a tour of a local organization. It might be a sporting event…either going as a group to watch the Wingnuts, or playing on an NYP bowling, dodgeball or volleyball team. It might include a community service event, such as our quarterly clean-up of Sand Creek. Or it may be an evening mingle where members can enjoy hor dourves and “adult” beverages.
