Young Professionals Council

The Young Professionals Council is a group of resourceful, community minded, and motivated young professionals who have an interest in engaging more with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona. 

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.

Their annual Casino Night signature event is a fun, festive evening that brings friends together to support BBBSAZ and network with other like-minded individuals.

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 Aimee Johnson at
