GRYP hosts over 40 events each year. These include educational events with our personal growth breakfast series, company tours, panel events and luncheon speakers, networking events with our monthly Unwinds and Table for Six, and volunteer opportunities.
When GRYP was formed in 2004, Grand Rapids did not offer a group that provided young professionals from a variety of professions the opportunity to network, grow and become more involved in the community – with no membership fees. Seven young professionals recognized this need and how it related to retaining talented young professionals and thereby established GRYP.
Building an inclusive community of young professionals in Grand Rapids to cultivate social, professional, and civic growth opportunities.
GRYP is dedicated to creating a diverse and inclusive environment for our members in all industries to broaden their knowledge and skills to become engaged members of the Grand Rapids community.
