Frequently Asked Questions
What is YJP’s Mission?
The YJP - Young Jewish Professionals is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, focused on providing business, educational, and mentoring opportunities for the new generation of Jewish business leaders.
We work to transform the lives of our members by opening doors to a world-class community of business leaders, innovators and forward thinkers, who mentor and teach through unparalleled educational experiences, upscale conferences, and forums. YJP exists to attract, develop, and create a community for YJP's who are willing to lead, innovate, and give back to the Jewish and global communities. We help our members continue a remarkable tradition of spearheading change - and we provide bold ideas and resources to shape their future as well as their Jewish identity for generations to come.

What is the difference between being a YJP Access Business Club member and being on the YJP mailing list?
Being on the mailing list does not make one a YJP Access Business Club member. Members have gone through the application process, have submitted their resume or bios, have been approved by a YJP division director, and have registered online.
Non members can attend 1 event. Afterwards they must become a member of the organization.

YJP is not a sales group or a Jewish singles group: we are here to create a platform where industry peers can learn from each other and connect with mentors, and where meaningful relationships and connections can be forged. Everyone wants to do business with individuals they know and trust: we are here to make those relationships happen.
