Habitat Young Professionals of Seattle was founded in 2008 due to the perseverance of Habitat for Humanity Seattle-King County Board Member, Brian Chung. He convinced a University of Washington MPA graduate student to conduct a feasibility study (considering recent growth in young professional extensions of established non-profits), which ultimately resulted in a solid recommendation that a local HYP group be formed. In 2014, with the perseverance of HYP Seattle Chair, Juli Genovesi, Habitat Young Professionals became a nationally recognized program of Habitat for Humanity International.
HYP is a growing group of driven, social and determined young professionals whose fundraising, marketing, volunteerism, community involvement, and social networking events cultivate lifelong supporters among the diverse population of socially conscious young professionals. We help build affordable homes, better lives, stronger families and safer communities. Since 2008, HYP Seattle has created fun and meaningful volunteer opportunities for hundreds of local young professionals and helped build over 30 homes in King County. Our monthly builds and happy hours are a great way for our young professionals to do good while having fun. Come see for yourself!
Role Description: The Social Events Chair helps enable HYP host events regularly, and works with other Steering Committee members to increase the level of enjoyment and fun for everyone! From happy hours, post-build get togethers, and special events – this position is about organizing and bringing people together to have a good time, connected by a good cause. This role is vital to the success of HYP not only because we like to have fun, but because it is often the gateway for newcomers who want to come check us out before joining a build.
