Cultivating Young Leaders, Creating A Stronger Community.
The Young Business Professionals (YBP) of the Coastal Bend supports the community by enriching members’ knowledge about the importance of social responsibility in a global market while providing opportunities for networking and mentorship between young and established professionals.
In order to achieve these goals, YBP hosts community service projects and quarterly networking mixers and speaker series events. These events give young business people the opportunity to build relationships with each other as well as with established professionals in the Coastal Bend. The YBP also works closely with major businesses in town to ensure the needs of their young professionals are being met.
The Young Business Professionals of the Coastal Bend was founded in 2009 by Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi in partnership with the City of Corpus Christi, the Port of Corpus Christi, all of which have a shared vision of retaining young professionals in the area to generate opportunities for the development of South Texas.
