YPG Captain Program: Earn rewards for practicing your leadership skills!

Program introduction

Young Professionals Group (YPG) captains earn points while exercising valuable leadership skills and making sincere connections. Points are earned for attending YPG events, encouraging peers to attend YPG events, and through a variety of other ways during the year. The YPG Captains Program is a great way to take an active approach to building your career network.

The YPG season runs from April 1 - March 31 with the majority of events happening May to December. 

The top scorers at the completion of the YPG season will be awarded the following prizes:

Scorer Prize
 1st         $500 check
 2nd     $300 check
 3rd $200 check

At select events, additional prizes are awarded to eligible captains based on criteria specified prior to the event.
