Connect

AYP aims to connect young professionals in all fields in Ashland to each other and to the community. We want to create a sense of belonging to our town and county. The group can have an impact on each other through social events within the group and on the community through service and volunteer opportunities. AYP hopes to become a resource for groups in the Ashland area looking for volunteers for their charitable or community service projects/events.

Attract & Retain

AYP should become a resource for attracting and retaining other young professionals in the area. Through this group, we hope to provide a sense of community and connection to YPs in our area. With these connections, we want to keep YPs in Ashland County, and be a resource for any seeking employment in or considering moving to the Ashland area.

Inspire

AYP wants to inspire the area young professionals through our connections with each other. YPs can support each other by providing space to collaborate and work through challenges, as well as a space to share ideas and best practices.

Educate & Guide

Our generation will be the next to bear the torch of leadership in our community. AYP hopes to create a group of effective leaders through mentorship programs and speakers.
