Young Professionals Board

Our Young Professionals Board (YPB) is a coalition of enthusiastic young professionals (under 40) in the Richmond and Northern Virginia 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. 


  • Support SOVA's fundraising efforts through annual giving, participating in signature fundraising events and developing new programs 
  • Advocate the Special Olympics movement and educate young professionals in their region to increase their involvement with the organization 
  • Build a network of like-minded young professionals in the Virginia community through social, fundraising, and volunteer opportunities
