The non-profit organization Young Catholic Professionals (YCP) is expanding, with five more chapters around the country slated to launch by the end of 2021.
“We have never been in a better place than we are today to grow both horizontally and vertically, reaching more young people in our current chapters and in cities across the country,” said Jennifer Baugh, the group’s founder and executive director, to CNA on June 25.
Young Catholic Professionals is a non-profit with a mission to “challenge, train and inspire young adults working in various professions to work in witness for Christ.” The organization brings together young adults and business professionals in a variety of programs to foster Catholic identity, encourage community and inspire action.
The group plans to launch five new chapters this year, bringing the total number of chapters around the country to 28. Philadelphia & Boston chapters are anticipated to launch by the end of the summer, followed by chapter launches in Kansas City, Nashville and Fairfield County, Connecticut before the end of year.
