Young Professionals Council Logo

Project Open Hand’s Young Professionals Council works to elevate the power of philanthropy that exists among our peers.

Through volunteer opportunities, fundraising initiatives and local events, Young Professionals Council (YPC) strives to support the mission of Project Open Hand by promoting passion for food justice and engage young professionals in activities that contribute to building a healthier community. YPC develops the next generation of civic leaders who are passionate about food justice in the Bay Area.


YPC membership is open to anyone who is interested in making a difference in the lives of seniors and the critically ill in our community. Benefits of YPC membership include exclusive invitations to periodic networking events and personal enrichment.
