Connecting, networking, engaging,

serving, and developing young

professionals in Tuscaloosa

Our mission is to connect and network with others aged 21-40, engage with and serve the Tuscaloosa community, and develop leadership and professional skills in our members.

WHAT IS A YOUNG PROFESSIONAL?

A "young professional" is generally defined as a person in their 20s or 30s who is employed in a profession or

white-collar occupation. At Young Tuscaloosa, we don't put you in a box.

We think the term "professional" can feel exclusive, and that's not what we're about.

Our members range from nurses to hairstylists to auto manufacturing workers to lawyers to insurance agents.

 

We accept anyone who is 21-40 and is looking to connect, network, engage, serve and develop with people just like you.

 

Most young professional organizations have "professionals" in their name. We decided to take the "professionals" out, leaving us simply...

 

YOUNG TUSCALOOSA.

WHY SHOULD YOU BECOME A MEMBER?

CONNECT

Connect with other Tuscaloosa-area young professionals at monthly socials.

NETWORK

ENGAGE

Engage with city and community leaders through advocacy and events.

SERVE
