Missoula Young Professionals provides events designed to engage young people (21 to "young at heart") from area firms and help them become more competitive in the business arena. The program helps young professionals establish a web of business contacts through networking and grow both personally and professionally through a variety of program topics and venues.

The MYP networking events are held on the third Tuesday of each month from 5-7 pm at various member businesses. We offer networking, prizes, food and beverages and often times a volunteer opportunity. All are welcome. Join us!
