Young Professionals Council

The Young Professionals Council (YPC) is The Doorways' next generations of supporters! The YPC is a dynamic group of individuals united by a desire to spread awareness of The Doorways throughout the Richmond community.

All proceeds from Young Professionals Council events are donated to The Doorways to support the cost of lodging our guests during their stay. Each member serves as an ambassador of The Doorways in the community, provides volunteer and community outreach support, and is an integral point of contact for The Doorways staff and Board of Directors.

YPC Member Activities

Member Meetings

Member meetings occur on the third Thursday of every other month and  are held at various hot spots and venues throughout the Richmond area. Member meetings focus around providing updates on the YPC budget and member activities, including socials/fundraisers, membership, and service projects. Meetings also provide an opportunity for members to socialize and network.

YPC Officers convene for bi-monthly officer meetings on the third Thursday of every other (non-member meeting) month.

Service Projects 

Members participate in quarterly service projects that support The Doorways' mission, including providing meals to our guests, deep cleaning areas of our building and hosting collection drives. Service projects are intended to provide opportunities for our members to connect directly and in a more personal way with the guests we serve.

Socials & Fundraisers

YPC members host several socials and community fundraisers throughout the years. Members are encouraged to bring family and friends to these events!

Friendraisers

In addition to socials and fundraisers, members participate in an annual membership fundraiser, a social event designed to raise awareness of The Doorways' mission in the community and connect with other young professionals - and prospective YPC members - in the area.
