Empowering Young Minds

Through professional networking events, interest groups, workshops and philanthropy, Lincoln Young Professionals Group (YPG) is a standout resource for young business people in the city. Lincoln YPG, a division of the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce, has more than 900 members. Those who join are a part one of the largest groups in the country.

One trend of young professionals is their desire to explore a new idea first hand. Young people embrace constant change, so no wonder Lincoln is seeing a major increase in startups and small business. The town itself seems to be getting younger as the benefits for young people grow. YPG makes sure it has its hand creating and facilitating those benefits and the community they want to live in. “Young professionals are figuring out that so much of the community is what they make it, and Lincoln is a place that creates that opportunity,” says Tom Beckius.

Lincoln keeps its young professionals by fostering a collaborative community enriched with a bolstering economy, connectivity and freedom for its young people to succeed. Beckius, a Lincoln native and Past-Chair of Lincoln YPG, feels Lincoln YPG empowers young people to live the life they want. “YPG believes members can make the difference and develop a career that is engaging and grow into the person that they want to be.”

Being a part of the Lincoln YPG is saying you care about your entire future—not just your career. It also says you are not ready to stop having fun while learning.
