Our MISSION is to provide an environment for individuals between the ages of 22 and 39 to meet and develop both socially and professionally.


Our VISION is to be an organization that brings young professionals together through the hosting of networking and developmental opportunities throughout the year.  We will be an avenue for attracting and retaining new young professionals to the Greater Aiken area through these events.  We will be a voice in the community for the young professionals in Greater Aiken.  We will foster a collaborative relationship between the Greater Aiken Chamber Commerce and area businesses. 


Throughout the year AYP hosts monthly gatherings called Third Thursday.  Third Thursday is an opportunity for individuals ages 22 to 39 to meet other young professionals in a relaxed atmosphere for networking. Members and first time guests are free. Registration is requested. In addition to Third Thursday, AYP hosts supper club, professional development opportunities and community service projects.  


AYP takes pride in being the voice of the local young professionals and working with the community to plan for a better future for tomorrow's young professionals.
