Saipan Young Professionals (SYP)
Inspire, network, and engage young professionals to influence positive change and foster growth that will shape the future of the Marianas.
To network with young professionals, mentor students, promote and provide resources for professional development, engage in community activities and events, and inspire young professionals to BE the difference.
To embrace an inclusive and powerful definition of professionalism and leadership that drives civic and cultural responsibility and community service.
We believe that professionalism and leadership are not tied to a position; rather, it is about a disposition. If you are driven to perform a task with the utmost excellence and understand that your work affects the lives of others, then you are a professional.
If you are sensitive to the need for change and are willing to commit your talents and invest your time to see the change take its shape, you are a leader.
As life brings about opportunities to participate, we commit to remain inclusive, authentic, and humble throughout the process, supporting those who will labor alongside.
