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 the time commitment will be approximately three to six hours per month over the course of six months to start.
YPG Members will:
  • Gain a deeper understanding of childhood poverty and Clothing Insecurity so they can convey the need and gain the support of the community.
  • Learn how to plan and execute a product collection, fundraiser, and social/networking events while also expanding leadership skills.
The group will meet monthly, either in The Giving Factory (located in Newton, MA) or virtually, depending on the month. Special events may take place elsewhere around Greater Boston.
The inaugural Young Professionals Group season will be held from October 2021 through March 2022. Volunteer events will be held every other month and informational/planning/social meetings will take place in alternating months.
If you have any questions about the program or would like to fill out an application, please contact Katherine Twait at ktwait@cradlestocrayons.org.
