Virginia Allan Young Careerist (YC) - a signature event
The Virginia Allan Young Careerist Program (YC) was founded by Virginia Allan who served as our National President in 1963. She recognized the need to recruit younger members -- and realized their professional, personal and political achievements of young professionals needed to be honored.
Candidates are reviewed and selected at the local Club level by delivering a prepared 4-minute speech, interviewing with judges, and preparing a biographical statement and application. The selected Young Careerist then competes at the State level. [ Read more ]
To participate in the program, a Young Careerist must:
- Be between the ages of 21 and 35;
- Have been employed with at least one year of full-time work experience in their career area;
- Support the mission of BPW.
