What is Young Catholic Professionals?

YCP was founded in 2010 to help young professionals connect with one another and maintain their Catholic faith while pursuing demanding careers.

Our mission is to encourage young adult professionals to Work in Witness for Christ.

YCP brings young adults together for speaker events, panel discussions, and networking in order to foster Catholic identity, to encourage community, and to inspire a call to action.
