About the Young Professionals Council

The BBBSAZ Young Professionals Council was founded by dedicated young professionals in the Valley who have a vested interest in shaping Arizona’s youth and building a stronger network of support for the agency. This diverse group of individuals, ages 18 to 40, volunteer their time to support BBBSAZ’s many initiatives in the community. YPC members volunteer at events, support BBBSAZ volunteer recruitment efforts, and represent BBBSAZ at various community events and networking groups. The group is well known for their annual Casino Night hosted each Fall which raises over $20,000 for BBBSAZ. 

The members of YPC are always looking for dynamic, community-minded individuals to join their efforts. If you’d like to learn more about YPC, please reach out to Adrian Jamieson at or (602) 393-4120.
