Young Professionals on a Mission

Our Young Professionals Council (YPC) is a dynamic group of 20- and 30-somethings united by a desire to spread awareness of The Doorways throughout the Richmond community.

Each member serves as an ambassador for The Doorways, provides volunteer and community outreach support, and is an integral point of contact for The Doorways staff and Board of Directors.
