Providing worthwhile networking events in the Capital

Wellington Young Professionals (WYP) was established in 2008 to provide an inclusive and industry-neutral platform for young professionals to develop both personal and professional networks and skills. Our primary focus is to facilitate opportunities for WYP members to grow their own networks through a healthy balance of social and professional events, at little or no cost. Our members also have access to a range of benefits from local Wellington businesses and national sponsors.

  • Anyone in the first 15 years of their career who is living, working, or wanting to make connections in the Wellington region.

  • WYP is funded jointly through our membership base and sponsors. We are not-for-profit and always do our best to keep the cost of membership and participation down.

  • If you feel WYP will benefit you in your profession, then WYP considers you a professional!
