This week, the City of Sault Ste. Marie and Mayor Provenzano declared May 9th – 15th 2021 as “Young Professionals Week” in Sault Ste. Marie.

Strive Young Professionals Group (YPG) is a group of like-minded professionals in the Sault Ste. Marie and Algoma region that aim to increase advocacy and awareness surrounding young professionals in the community. One of their main goals is to retain and attract professionals to the area and offer networking and professional development opportunities. With the uncertainty this past year has brought, Strive wants to take the time to recognize the resilience and tenacity displayed by young professionals throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Strive will be showcasing multiple young professionals through a video compilation on their social media pages this week so be sure to check it out! They are always looking for new members to join the YP community and encourage those who are not yet members to sign up on their website.

This week is an opportunity for young professionals to connect, and lean on each other to foster stronger professional and community relations.

Stay tuned for more exciting news as Strive launches a new website later this week and new member to member benefits closer to the summer.

“Young Professionals in our community are our future leaders and it is important to recognize them and celebrate their success”, says Derek Jackson, Chair of Strive YPG. For more information, visit the Strive website and follow them on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn @striveYPG.
