To many, Richmond is just the city we live in. Programs like YRichmond invite you to truly understand the creativity, history, and culture present in this remarkable community. The companies that support us and the interns who engage with us are ultimately contributing to the success of the Richmond region as a whole by spreading the word and retaining top talent. This continuous cycle of education and retention is key to the region’s success, as are the volunteers and partners that help make it happen. YRichmond and the Chamber extend our thanks and appreciation for supporting this program and making it a great source for our regions emerging leaders.

The events really broke down the city in a way that made it easier to get to know Richmond without getting overwhelmed. I experienced a lot of things that I probably wouldn’t have had the chance to without this program.
