The Southern Vermont Young Professionals is a professional development, social networking, and sustainable place-making program designed to retain, attract, and support new and native Vermonters between the ages of 22-45.

The need for a vibrant young professional community was identified in the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategies (CEDS) created by SeVEDS, and the Southern Vermont Young Professionals works to mitigate the negative impacts of an aging workforce and tax-base.

For more information, follow us on Facebook and subscribe to our email list.
