Welcome and thank you for visiting the Rochester Black Young Professionals' website.  Founded in 2012, BYP targets individuals ages 21 through 40 to foster growth and professional development, empower members to achieve success and  strive to improve our community as we improve ourselves.  Looking to take your career to the next level, or simply expand your social circles?  BYP is the place for you!

Serving the community is a pillar of the Rochester Black Young Professionals organization.  We strive to improve the overall quality of life for those in need.  Volunteering allows members to use their skills and abilities to help others, and positively impact our community. 



Each month, we host socials at local venues in the Greater Rochester Area.  Providing an opportunity to make connections with a variety of individuals promotes both personal and professional growth.  Many attendees meet others in their field or expand their current networks.  For information on our next event, click here.
