The organization provides unique opportunities for professional development and networking through educational and social programming.
RYP’s 3 Key Lunch series gives participants a chance to hear from guest speakers on topics that are intended to develop “you, your career and your community”. On November 8, the series will look at the topic “What does community engagement mean to you?” with 2 featured speakers. Edward Akinyemi, from the North End Community Investment Collaborative (NECIC) and Aurelio Diaz, from Boyd Law Office, will discuss the importance of community engagement and what that means to each of them personally. In this “armchair” discussion Edward and Aurelio will talk about the similarities and differences between their careers, leadership, personalities, and community involvement. They will also talk about their understandings of leadership, community engagement, using your professional expertise to benefit your community, and talking about taking action versus actually taking action.
This event will be held at Hudson & Essex, downtown Mansfield, and will start at 12:00 PM. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased here.
