P – Professionals: Cape Cod Young Professionals
Text by Elizabeth Kastelein
Cape Cod Young Professionals (CCYP) was founded in 2005 to provide career development, connection and civic engagement opportunities for Cape Cod’s 45-and-under population. CCYP, which boasts over 1,000 members, continues to promote a flourishing network of people by connecting and engaging with Cape Cod’s young workforce.
CCYP hosts events such as networking functions to help equip young people with practical professional skills. But, due to the coronavirus, many of the traditional events that CCYP offers look different this year. The Back to Business Bash helps young professionals connect while supporting the local business community. This year, CCYP partnered with many local businesses and past Bash vendors to offer free food and drink items at locations across the Cape in a self-guided, COVID-safe version of the popular event. To provide support for the Cape’s young workforce community during the pandemic, CCYP created a new Laser-Focused Coaching service, designed to help members and non-members navigate career changes, unemployment and other challenges. The 30-minute sessions with a professionally trained coach are designed to address a single professional or personal issue through a collaborative process that guides an individual towards accomplishing a goal.
CCYP not only provides career development coaching and opportunities, but also resources for housing, childcare and more. Through CCYP, young professionals are able to feel a part of the wider community, while also working to accomplish career and personal goals.
