young professionals Board

Special Olympics Tennessee's Young Professionals Board (YPB) is dedicated to raising community awareness and fundraising efforts while supporting the organization's mission. Made up of enthusiastic individuals under the age of 40, the YPB uses its collective professional experiences to raise the visibility of SOTN and provide for new programs through fundraising events such as the Mini Masters and Polar Plunge. Another crucial part of the YPB is providing hands on technical assistance as volunteers at Summer Games, Flag Football and more. Becoming a member also serves as a platform for potential future leadership roles on the Special Olympics Tennessee's Board of Directors.

The YPB membership draws from the professional community throughout the Greater Nashville area. If you are interested in joining our board, please click one of the buttons below to apply or download the paper form for more information.
