DECEMBER 2018
Thank you for attending CCYP's 13th Annual Community Breakfast!

On November 13th, CCYP hosted our 13th Annual Community Breakfast at the Wequasset Resort and Country Club in Harwich, generously presented by Cape Cod Five . The CCYP community joined together to celebrate the successes of the past year and recognize recipients of our 2018 Volunteer Awards, Career Connect Scholarship, and Giving Circle Grants.

This year, we were excited to welcome Jung-Ho Pak, Artistic Director & Conductor for the Cape Symphony , as our special Guest Speaker. Jung-Ho's speech "How to Change the World - Connecting with Everyone" touched on one of CCYP's key pillars - connection - and its importance to our community. Jung-Ho spoke on how connection and passion are crucial in all aspects of life, and left attendees feeling inspired to consider why they do what they do.

CCYP and EforAll Cape Cod Host Partnership Launch Party
CCYP and EforAll Cape Cod were excited to host a Partnership Launch Party at the West End this past November! The energy at the event left us excited to kick off our joint efforts to support economic vibrancy and business opportunity on Cape Cod.

As announced in October , CCYP and EforAll Cape Cod are joining forces to amplify entrepreneur mentoring and small business development opportunity within our Cape community. Due to the generous support of the Massachusetts Technological Collaborative (MassTech), EforAll Cape Cod will be bringing their signature programs, a Business Accelerator and Pitch Contests, to Cape Cod while CCYP will supplement these efforts through promotional support and post-accelerator support for Cape-based entrepreneurs.

The EforAll-CCYP Partnership hits the mark with two of CCYP's Strategic Priorities - promoting Cape Cod as a vibrant place for young people to live and work, and providing opportunities for leadership and career development. We're confident that this collaboration will not only continue to promote the Cape as a viable place for young professionals, but a place where entrepreneurs can thrive.

As 2018 comes to a close and we turn towards a season of thankfulness, we want to thank our CCYP community for your continued support of our work and mission.

We work hard to foster year-round connection and community building; serve as a go-to resource for civic engagement and policy education on issues that affect the Cape's young professional community; and provide opportunities for career development , volunteerism , and leadership.

But we need your help to continue this important work! Please consider making a year-end donation to CCYP through our NEW online giving portal .
