HYPE (Helping Young Professionals Engage) is a hub for RVA young professionals to connect with each other, plug into our community and grow personally and professionally.
Why Join HYPE?
HYPE is THE SOURCE for the YP Community. What brings us together is what continues to make RVA a better place to live, work, and play. Since 2007, HYPE (Helping Young Professionals Engage) has worked to develop talent and strengthen the YP culture in RVA through events and programming designed to help empower and ignite the passions of Richmond’s Future Decision Makers.
