Young Professionals

Who are we?

The Young PR Professionals (YPRP) Committee is an affinity group and part of the Rochester Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA). The group fosters collaboration with young and new professionals who have joined the communications career field. Professionals in the group can be ages 21-30 or have less than seven years of working experience in the field.

The group encourages young professionals to collaborate and engage in local community initiatives as well as networking with other professionals in the field. The group also engages with local community colleges, universities and high schools to serve as speakers, resources and/or mentors.

The group also provides opportunities for young professionals and students in the PR/marketing-communications field to develop valuable connections with seasoned professionals in the Rochester area via the PRSA Advisory Network, which is an online directory-based resource and networking group.
