The Young Professionals Council (YPC) is a way for rising professionals, ages 24-35, to bring their passion and philanthropic power of young professionals together to assist Jericho in maximizing the positive impact on the wellbeing of our city’s most vulnerable populations.
The YPC contributes to Jericho’s mission of ending homelessness in New York City through volunteerism, fundraising and networking.
YPC Members enjoy exclusive benefits including fun social opportunities with other young professionals and volunteer opportunities.
If you are interested in joining the YPC, contact Johnae Ferguson, Development Manager at
We look forward to hearing from you.
