The only event of its kind in Southern Vermont, the gala brings together community members of ALL ages to celebrate and support our young professionals.

For the past two years the event has attracted over 300 attendees to the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center — let’s keep it going for a third!

With admission, gala-goers can look forward to a night of local catered food and dessert, live music, and a photo booth. There will be a cash bar and raffle tickets will be available for purchase with potential prizes ranging from hotel stays to lift tickets and an array of Windham County gifts and goods.

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.
