Young Professionals Network

The Young Professionals Network provides a place for young professionals and workers to connect, engage and develop with the aim to retain them in our community.

The Bendigo Young Professionals Network was established in 2004 to provide professional networking opportunities for young and career oriented people (20s and 30s).
Young professionals in Bendigo are faced with unique challenges and opportunities to our counterparts in the major cities, which is why it is the aim of YPN to provide informative and fun events specific to young and regional professionals from any industry.  These events include social gatherings, workshops, or seminars at local Bendigo venues. The Bendigo YPN provides a great avenue for creating business connections and lifelong friendships for locals and those new to the region.  

The YPN also provides local organisations with professional development and networking options for their young employees. Young employees can connect with others in the business community, giving them access to wealth of knowledge within the network. The YPN is proudly supported by Be.Bendigo.
