Benefits of a CYP Club Membership

Whether you join as a Social member (for free) or as a Premium member ($95 for 12 months), there are some amazing benefits that come with your Columbus Young Professionals Club membership. And as the nation's largest YP membership organization, there are nearly 28,000 fellow CYP Club members who you are already connected to via our club!

Membership in the CYP Club is full of opportunities to socialize with other young business professionals, network with local business and community leaders, volunteer in the community, play on a sports team, discover career opportunities, and more.

Here is a list of some of the benefits of being a member of the CYP Club:

Social Membership is Free

We don't charge any dues or have attendance requirements, allowing you the flexibility to attend our events based on your schedule and your preference. Membership is completely free and open to anyone wishing to join.

Premium Membership is only $95 per year

If you do want to get more involved though, our Premium membership option allows you even more access to the best social networking events in central Ohio for less than $8 per month. And adding up all of the annual savings for events and benefits, a Premium Membership has a value of more than $300.

Community Connections

The CYP Club has grown to become the nation's #1 largest membership organization for young professionals with more than 20,000 members, access to hundreds of local employers, and tmore than 8,000 community service hours donated each year.

A Member-Driven Organization

As a CYP Club member we will always ask you for suggestions on ideas and events, and we will work diligently to offer you the best member experience possible.

Professional and Fun Programming

The CYP Club hosts more than 150 unique events each year for our members, in addition to organizing large-scale, city-wide initiatives such as the Columbus Impact Academy, Columbus Young Professionals (YP) Week, CityPulse Columbus, and The Grandview Hop, just to name a few.

Recreational Sports Leagues

The CYP Club also offers 30 different recreational sports leagues throughout the year - including Volleyball, Softball, Kickball, Bowling, Basketball, Soccer and more.

A Commitment to the Community

Since 2005, the CYP Club membership has helped raise more than $550,000 in charitable donations and created sustainable impact opportunities for hundreds of local non-profit organizations. If you want to have a hand in giving back to the community, we can point you in the right direction. Dozens of CYP Club members have also been asked to serve on nonprofit boards as a result of being actively involved. And once a year, we host the Columbus Volunteer Expo - an event that connects hundreds of attendees with more than 60 different nonprofit organizations, as we raise awareness of volunteerism.

A Dedicated Team

The CYP Club is led by a paid staff of 7 and nearly 50 volunteers who continue to develop programs and initiatives for our members and for the community at large.
