About Us 

Our Mission

Our mission is to make Tallahassee a city where young professionals choose to live, work, play, and stay. The Tallahassee Network of Young Professionals (NYP) is not a place to merely exchange business cards, but an organization intended to help you enjoy Tallahassee, while uniquely intersecting the benefits of enhancing your social and professional life.

What We Do

Established in 2003, our goal is to to foster personal and professional growth by connecting our members through fun and engaging activities, while simultaneously offering career enhancing opportunities. We are focused on all aspects of a young professional's life, and our events offer a chance for young professionals to explore Tallahassee and meet its residents in a casual atmosphere. NYP allows you to network in different settings and opens a door to building lasting friendships.


We want to show young professionals in our city the more vibrant side of Tallahassee—that we are not just a college town. Additionally, we want to enrich the city as a whole by providing service and valuable resources to local businesses and cultural organizations. It’s an exciting time to be a young professional in Tallahassee, and we know we have an opportunity to help shape our city’s future.
