We'd love to meet you and welcome you into the YJP community!
YJP seeks to empower young professionals by connecting them through business, educational and social events.
This international movement has successfully engaged, involved and inspired thousands of members across the world since 2013.
Widely recognised as one of Melbourne’s foremost organisations of its kind within the Jewish community, YJP succeeds in providing unique opportunities for Jewish Young Professionals.
The non-profit Melbourne branch of YJP was created with the aim of bringing together like-minded visionaries, entrepreneurs and professionals to support and empower their peers.
Our members come from diverse backgrounds within the Jewish community and hold shared values of being driven to leadership and professional success. For emerging leaders, being a part of YJP enables the rapid growth of both personal and professional networks and the chance to develop meaningful relationships.
YJP facilitates a range of events throughout the year, including talks led by some of Australia’s brightest minds, networking for young professionals and social events to celebrate religious holidays.
