When research from the Visioneering Wichita process revealed that each young adult who leaves the Wichita area costs $300,000 in lost investment, Chamber staff realized the pressing need to immediately enter the fierce, global competition for young professionals in our community. Young Professionals of Wichita was launched in June 2005, with a vision of making Wichita the Heartland's destination for young intellectual capital. With membership of nearly 2,200 and growing, this organization is comprised of bright, energetic "YPs" who promise to be extremely instrumental in the growth of Wichita over the coming years.

Who are the YP's?

Young Professionals of Wichita is a membership-based organization geared towards Wichitans between 21 and 39. "YPs" are ambitious, educated, and wired; those ready to work hard, play hard, and make a difference in their community.

YPW's goals are simple.

The number one aspiration is brain gain for Wichita by:

  • Creating professional and social diversity
  • Building community pride
  • Increasing the quality of life for young professionals
  • Growing the next generation of leaders
  • Establishing a collective voice for yps
