Come to an Event

Especially in your first year of membership, attend as many events as you can – it’s the best way to see firsthand what YPK does and who makes up our great group. Don't be afraid to start a conversation with a stranger or volunteer not knowing anyone ahead of time. By the end of the day, you'll have made new connections and possibly lifelong friends. Find a list of upcoming events here.
