Gather your friends to give a boost to your community

Through Cradles to Crayons’ Giving Corps, our Young Professionals Group (YPG) offers inspiring programs for its members to develop skills in community organizing, fundraising, volunteer service, and leadership while making a difference in their communities.

Membership is accepted on a rolling basis and is open to all young working professionals in the Boston area, especially those looking to make a difference and impact in their community. Whether you are new to the area or are looking to make new connections, all backgrounds are welcome!


About the Young Professionals Group

The Cradles to Crayons Young Professionals Group is geared towards members aged 21-35 in the greater Boston area. The group offers a space to engage with like-minded peers and the community in a meaningful way that supports Cradles to Crayons’ mission by growing our network of supporters and friends. Membership is free and each member is expected to make a one-year commitment and attend at least 70% of annual events and meetings. All of these events will be held at our location in Newton, in the greater Boston area, and/or virtually.
YPG Members will:
  • Gain a deeper understanding of our mission and ways we can work together to end Clothing Insecurity.
  • Learn how to plan and execute a product collection, fundraiser, and social/networking events while also expanding leadership skills.
  • Meet and connect with like-minded individuals looking to make a difference in their community.
