Young and Young-at-Heart Professionals

Do you find yourself wondering how to change the industry for the better, but you don’t know where to start? Are you new to public media and looking for advice, connections, and mentorship from your peers? The Young and Young-at-Heart Professionals (YAYAHPs) Group might be the group for you!

The YAYAHPs are a group of young professionals who work in public media development, marketing, corporate support, and many other areas. We are eager to make our voices heard in our industry as we assume greater roles within it. We are not afraid to try new things, embrace new technologies, and make DEI work a central focus of our organizations. We take time every few months to gather, share ideas, and establish connections to strengthen our work and the public media system as a whole.

If you are a young professional, which we define as under 35 years old, or have been working in public media for under five years (young at heart! and are interested in some exciting training, discussion, and networking opportunities, we would love to have you participate.
