Get involved and make a difference with other young professionals!

A place to CONNECT with other people ages 21-40 and meet like-minded individuals living and working in the Prescott area. Whether it’s a casual lunch gathering, an After 5 evening mixer at a local business, or the Annual PAYP Holiday Party, there are plenty of opportunities to socialize and network within the group. Keep an eye out for community service themes to IMPACT our community, education opportunities, as well as business card drawings.

Lunch & Learn is a speaker series featuring industry experts discussing the things they know best. These events are a bit more intimate, and a little more structured, than our After5 networking events. Each Lunch & Learn event is a 30 to 45 minute speaker presentation book-ended with discussion and of course, some networking.

In the end, Lunch & Learn was put together to help inspire your own professional development by giving you an opportunity to not just engage with your city, but interact with the knowledge and people that help drive a city on the move.
