The Young Professionals are a volunteer auxiliary group that raises friends and funds for Break the Cycle.  In their fifth year as a committee, these individuals organize and promote social gatherings and awareness events to acquaint other young professionals with Break the Cycle’s work through events like bingo and our annual benefit, Unmasquerade.

To date, the Young Professionals have raised more than $25,000 to benefit Break the Cycle’s life-saving work with youth!
