Why join AYP

Plans are underway for a productive year for the Aiken Young Professionals. The 260-member group continues to grow as more and more 22- to 39-year olds learn the benefits of AYP. Read what current AYP members are saying.

“I believe that joining AYP is a great way to integrate into the Aiken community. It provides a way to connect with other young professionals who support and help each other in reaching both personal and professional goals, plus it is key to sustaining a young population which is needed to ensure Aiken continues to thrive.

I’ve been a member of AYP since 2011 and have enjoyed every moment!”

“AYP has helped me expand my knowledge of the variety of professions available in Aiken and what role other professionals in the same age range are doing to improve them.”

"It's all about networking and being able to get to know the up and coming leaders of tomorrow."

John Engel

“AYP gives young professionals a forum to learn from each other and unique opportunities to support our community. I have not only learned more about our community, but I have also formed lasting business relationships.”

Kandace Cave

“AYP is a very affordable way for young professionals to build their personal and business networks while also getting to know more about the community in which they live. I enjoy AYP because it gives me the opportunity to participate in social functions and community service, while allowing me the flexibility to attend those activities which engage my interests and fit my schedule.”
