“Joining the YP Program has not only been a rewarding and fun experience, but has provided me a myriad of resources and tools necessary to thrive in Hawaii as a professional. From participating in mentorship with C-suite executives, professional development and networking with YPs across various industries, the program has allowed me to cultivate meaningful professional and personal relationships, as well as deepen my understanding of the business scene in Honolulu. -Bianca Mordasini, Director of Alumni Engagement, Shidler College of Business, University of Hawaii at Manoa


“The YP Program is a great organization to network and meet like-minded individuals who are looking to build lasting relationships and advance their careers. You also get a chance to work together to improve our business community and learn about different business industries.  It’s motivating to meet such accomplished people in business around my age who I can relate to, but also learn from seasoned executives willing to share their career advice. I have gained a lot from the YP Program, and wish I joined sooner. You really get what you put into the organization, so I highly suggest that every young business professional join the YP Program and get involved with a committee at any capacity your time allows. -YongChae Song, Senior Account Executive, This Week Publications
