Young Environmental Professionals (YEP)

Oregon and Washington Chapters

YEP events aim to inspire and nurture both personal and professional development. Our participants are primarily those under 40 who are interested in, or who are newer to the environmental protection & cleanup, waste & recycling, energy & efficiency, water & wastewater, sustainability, development, and related fields.

Join us to socialize & network, while helping build a forum that allows you to address emerging issues with other young professionals who are working in varied sectors of today’s environmental & energy industries.

Stay informed of all YEP events and request to be added to YEP email list!
