The mission of YPC is to develop and empower young LGBT professionals and their allies through the Young Professionals Council Academy (YPC Academy). The YPC Academy will help to expand the ranks of young LGBT leaders that are ready to further equality for our community through board service for a variety of agencies, not-for-profit organizations and government commissions.
The YPC fosters a culture of diversity, service, leadership, advocacy and camaraderie among young LGBT San Diegans while developing the next generation of LGBT and LGBT-allied civic leaders.
