What is YPCN and what does it stand for?
YPCN stands for the Young Professional Career Network. We are committed to helping provide young professionals with real world experiences by linking the local business community, government, and non-profit organizations with their extremely talented local student populations through our “Bridging the Gap Internship Program” and its career networking community.
What is the focus of the YPCN seminars?
The 4 ½ hour seminar is an inner exploration designed to help students prepare to enter their career of choice by helping to identify what is needed to create the foundation to find a job, become an entrepreneur, own a business, run a non-profit organization and live a meaningful personal life.
What has been the reaction by those who have participated?
The YPCN Career Development seminar is consistently rated as the top leadership seminar by students and professors alike. Many institutions, such as DECA, have incorporated it as part of their yearly leadership programs.
Can Universities or Colleges use YPCN as a recruiting tool?
Yes. Several institutions have developed Youth Leadership events for area high school students. YPCN even offers a modified version of our seminar for use with high school students. Also many College/University leadership organizations use our collegiate seminar as a way to recruit new members.
