"Tippy Connect Young Professionals is a great organization to be involved in to establish roots in the Lafayette community. As a young professional looking for connections, TCYP allowed me to meet new friends, find ways to help my community through volunteering, and explore new restaurants and venues in town. My continued involvement with TCYP has made Lafayette feel like home, and I would encourage any young professionals in the Greater Lafayette area to consider joining TCYP!"
"Joining Tippy Connect Young Professionals is a great way for individuals interested in expanding their network and learning more about our community to get involved. Beyond networking, TCYP provides development opportunities for emerging professionals and helps connect them with new friends, colleagues, business leaders, and community resources."
“Since I joined Tippy Connect in 2008, the organization has been a catalyst for my career and connections in the community. Many of the organizations I belong to now were through connections made at Tippy Connect professional development and networking events.”
“Retaining Young Professionals is a vital part of having a thriving community. There are a lot of things drawing people to Greater Lafayette, but there are still some gaps to keeping people rooted here. TCYP addresses this need by creating avenues for new and existing community members to connect and develop personal and professional relationships."
