The LIRS Young Professionals Council is a dynamic group of socially conscious young professional leaders (age 21-35) motivated to bring awareness to the mission of LIRS and to serve immigrants and refugees through fundraising, networking, and volunteer activities geared towards fellow young professionals.
Serving as advocates and ambassadors for LIRS, the Young Professionals Council (YPC) are individuals who have expressed a strong commitment to serving immigrants, refugees, and unaccompanied migrant children while furthering the mission of LIRS for a minimum of a one-year term (renewable twice for a possible total of 3 years).
Members of the Young Professionals Council will have opportunities to attend social events, be given the tools and opportunities to plan and host fundraising events in order to support LIRS, have access to other professionals and leaders to further grow their network, and be immersed in the work of welcoming newcomers with LIRS.
Please note: Applications do not open until July 1.
