Young Catholic Professionals (YCP), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is one of the nation's fastest-growing Catholic organizations with chapters in cities across the country and international interest. YCP was founded by a young entrepreneur in 2010 in Dallas with a mission to "Work in Witness for Christ."

YCP is approached by young adults across the world asking to launch a chapter in their city. We have active chapters in 20 U.S. cities and relationships with Catholics in more than 40 other cities around the world.

Our members use their experience to become ambassadors of the faith in the public square. In this way, YCP forms tomorrow’s leaders to step forward in their communities and workplaces.

YCP Chapter Leadership teams are composed of 7 young professional core leaders and supporting volunteers. Leaders serve from 3-10 hours per week depending on their role, and commit to a 1 year term (for existing YCP chapters), or a 1 year term plus an initial training period (for YCP chapters not currently in existence).

Vice President (VP) Role
If you selected a "Director" role above, you are also eligible to take on one of the two VP roles (if one is available in your chapter). Your title would be “VP & Director of Marketing,” for instance.

VP's commit an 2 additional hours/week to serve in a more strategic capacity. Time commitment: 2 hours strategic + 3-5 hours functional = 7 total hours/week as a VP & Director of XYZ.

In addition to the functional responsibilities of a Director, a VP takes on extra chapter leadership responsibilities, including:

• Regular “Core Leadership” meetings with President and other VP.
• Working with President to create strategic quarterly and annual goals.
• Attending quarterly board meetings with Chapter Board.
• Leading chapter team meetings.
• Providing leadership and guidance at events.
