Our Young Professionals Board (YPB) is a coalition of enthusiastic young professionals (under 40) in the Richmond area who seek to inspire radical inclusion through fundraising, advocacy, and volunteer involvement. The YPB is tasked with raising the visibility of the organization and building new programs through fundraising.

Upcoming Engagement Opportunities:
Fundraising: Save the Date: #GivingTuesday is November 27. After celebrating Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday consider #GivingOpportunity to some incredible athletes! This spring, Special Olympics Virginia will send seven athletes to Abu Dhabi to compete with Team USA at the 2019 World Games. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Special Olympics athletes!
Social: #GivingTuesday Celebration! Join us at Vasen Brewing Company from 7-9 PM on November 27 to celebrate our fundraising success with a frosty beverage and all of your best friends (seriously, bring all of your friends).
