The Wyandot County Young Professionals (WCYP) is a group that was created by and as a subsidiary of the Wyandot County Office of Economic Development in 2013. Since that time the WCYP has grown membership and its own funding mechanisms creating the ability for it to become its own separate, non-profit entity.
Purpose and Intent: The WCYP is organized to create a network of young professionals that will develop themselves through mutual learning opportunities, community service, and knowledge shared by current and past community leaders. WCYP will work to develop necessary competencies in potential future business and community leaders, and actively strive to attract and retain young educated talent for the purpose of improving the economic viability and quality of life in Wyandot County.
Mission: To develop, connect, empower, and retain young professionals through increased opportunities and resources that will enhance their professional development and business success within the region.
Meetings: WCYP meet the last Thursday of each month. Check the calendar for location and changes.
