“Without CCYP events and this organization's willingness to engage me as a new member of the community, I would not be where I am today. CCYP has been a huge help in introducing me to other business professionals on Cape Cod as well as people I can now call friends. The organization has made me feel at home in a region that has a reputation for being a ‘tough network to break into.’”

Adam Trivilino, CCYP MemberRogersGray

After Hours Connect

Whether you're a longtime CCYP member, brand new to CCYP, or just looking to meet new people, our After Hours Connects provide a casual and fun setting to meet professionals from a variety of industries and towns across Cape Cod. Grab a friend (or two!) and get ready to pass out your business card! We hold After Hours Connects all across the Cape, year-round, in partnership with CCYP member business and nonprofit hosts. Delicious local appetizers, cash bar, great giveaways ... and terrific people from all across the region! We guarantee you will always make new connections!

Coffee Connect

Looking for an opportunity to expand your network on the Cape? Join us at a virtual or in-person CCYP Coffee Connect!

Represent your business or organization, share resources and ideas, and see first-hand what makes CCYP one of the most vibrant nonprofits in our region!

Each participant has an opportunity to share their “elevator pitch” with the group in a facilitated roundtable format and enjoy getting to know each other as we "popcorn around the room" in an interactive and engaging hour of networking and conversation.

Plus, at each Coffee Connect, a Cape nonprofit “co-host” receives a spotlight. A young professional from the organization has a chance to share a brief update on exciting projects they are part of and highlight opportunities to become involved in the great work happening here in our region.

A list of participants and LinkedIn contacts are shared directly with attendees after the event to help keep the networking going!

Friends + Family Connect

You don't have to leave the family at home to grow your professional network! Designed to be both family and networking-friendly, CCYP's Friends + Family Connects allow young professionals to engage with fellow Cape Codders in a family-friendly environment. People of all ages, including children, are welcome! We pick locations that are fun to explore and offer a mix of networking (similar to After Hours Connects) and hands-on activities to keep everyone engaged. Bring the whole family, bring a friend or two, bring your business cards!
