Richmond Young Professionals Board

The Richmond Young Professionals Board was established in 2017. Since it's inaugural year, the board has raised more than $92,000 for the athletes of Special Olympics Virginia.

In addition to their fundraising efforts, they have also volunteered at 15 unique events and have even participated/hosted numerous special events. Some of these events include: Richmond Corporate Games, Giving Tuesday, Professional Development Panels and Plunge events. In 2019 YPB added a signature event, the RVA Corporate Truck Pull, to their portfolio.

"YPB is a way to be more involved and give back to the Richmond community while building a network of young professionals with a similar passion for service."
