What We Offer

Throughout the year, our calendar is full of professional and fun events for our members; some free, some with a fee to enter. This allows the flexibility to attend based on your schedule, your preference, and your wallet. And with more than 100 events & activities and 30 recreational sports leagues to choose from, we encourage members to get outside their comfort zone and try something new. Membership grants you access to all our events, with each event offering a different experience! For most events, attendance can range from a few dozen to a few hundred attendees. And some of our larger initiatives, such as Columbus Young Professionals Week, will welcome a few thousand attendees.

How We Give Back

We have raised more than $500,000 for local charities through our events. And each month we offer a variety of small group volunteer efforts through our service board, CYP Club Cares, which contributes more than 10,000 volunteer hours each year. CYP Club Cares also hosts the Columbus Volunteer Expo in the spring and Speed Networking with Non-Profits in the fall.

Where We Are Going

Our organization is also evolving as we continue to grow with and for our community. As an entrepreneurial endeavor, the CYP Club has developed additional initiatives in the areas of workforce development, publishing, and expansion to other cities.
