ExpandED Young Professionals Network

What is XYP?

ExpandED Young Professionals Network (XYP) is a diverse group of young professionals who are passionate about education and who want to make an impact. Membership to this vibrant community is open to all interested early to mid-career professionals. We also welcome seasoned professionals who are young at heart and believe in the power of engaging the next generation of leaders to join.

XYP network members make an annual contribution of $95 and gain exclusive access to community events designed to connect civic-minded young professionals. Through monthly e-communications, panel discussion series, and site visits to NYC public schools, members gain the knowledge and exposure to use their social and professional influence as advocates for NYC kids.

Why NYC needs XYP?

For almost 20 years, ExpandED Schools has worked to ensure that every New York City kid has access to enriching educational opportunities. We’ve reached over 1,000,000 children and youth, but we still have a long way to go.

We launched XYP because we know it will take the engagement and investment of a robust group of emerging leaders to propel this work in the years to come. XYP members will become trusted representatives of ExpandED Schools and collaborate with the Board of Directors and Junior Board to execute social media driven volunteer engagement and crowdfunding campaigns.

“I believe that we, as young professionals, are not only uniquely positioned to contribute, but also owe it to future generations to help them navigate this rapidly changing career landscape. For any young professional who wants to ensure that every NYC kid is prepared for the future, joining XYP is the right first step.”
