Signature Events

College Tour Program

Each year, YPN partners with the ULBC in a year long college preparedness program entitled College Tour Program at Deerfield Beach High School. YPN presented various sessions such as Civic Engagement, Career Symposium, Financial Aid, and other meaningful topics for sophomores, juniors, and senior students. Over the past several years, the Young Professionals Network has committed hundreds of volunteer hours towards the program. Moreover, YPN volunteers are assigned junior mentees to assist them throughout the year.

The Urban League of Broward County Young Professionals Scholarship is our signature initiative in which our chapter continues to champion. All proceeds for this event goes towards our College Tour Program scholarships for high school seniors at Deerfield High School. This past year, we were able to raise $4,500 in scholarship funds for high school senior students who participate in College Tour Program.
