Podium RVA’s Young Professionals (YP) Board shapes the future of youth education by supporting the growth of young professionals across Greater Richmond. The YP Board creates opportunities for young leaders to build relationships, expand skills, and advance their careers. Meeting monthly, YP Board members organize awareness events, socials, give-back nights, and engage in professional mentorship alongside our Board of Directors.
