Our Young Professionals Network (YPN) is a group of passionate and diverse young professionals, between the ages of 21 to 35, who are interested in using their knowledge, skills, expertise and networks to raise awareness and mobilize support for Edgewood. The YPN assists Edgewood’s Advancement Team by acting as ambassadors for Edgewood through advocacy, fundraising, networking, promotion, and volunteering to further our impact in the Bay Area. YPN will have the opportunity to network with professionals in the behavioral health space and will be interested in making a difference in their community.
