(BYP) Bakersfield Young Professionals
The Bakersfield Young Professionals (BYP) Council works to elevate and support Bakersfield’s young professionals as emerging business, civic and community leaders by educating the young professionals community on local commerce and government, supporting local development initiatives and connecting young professionals with community leaders. BYP strives to inspire and encourage professional development, encourage networking and social connectedness and provide philanthropic opportunities for young professionals to give back to the community and its citizens.
BYP hosts various events throughout the year, including the annual BYP Street Party each October, Pub Club networking events and partners with the Kern Community Foundation to host Philanthropy on Tap, a series where community nonprofits connect with interested young professionals and community members.
