Social And Professional Networking With A Purpose

The Candlelighters Young Professionals Group is comprised of professionals 35 years and younger whose mission is to support Candlelighters Houston through volunteerism and fundraising while offering members social and professional networking opportunities. The Candlelighters Young Professionals Group (YPG) was created to support the Candlelighters mission to provide emotional, educational and practical assistance to families of children with cancer.

Members of the Young Professionals Committee are asked to attend meetings where they are given the opportunity to take part in the inception, planning and ultimately the success of several social functions throughout the year aimed at raising both funds and awareness for Candlelighters. Additionally, the committee hosts occasional networking and social gatherings at area restaurants or bars to foster an environment of year-round involvement.
