The Young Professionals Council Announces New Exec Team

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. They work closely with the BBBSAZ Board of Directors who serve as mentors and provide opportunities for YPC members to learn more about being philanthropic leaders in our community.

The YPC is excited to announce the election of their new Executive Team who will provide leadership and structure to the group for the coming Fiscal Year!

In his professional career, Jacob is a Managing Partner at Happy Camper Insurance. 

Jessica Holsapple, Membership Chair

Megan Epley, Events Chair
