What is the Georgia YPG?

The YPG provides a forum for networking, learning new skills, and above all, having fun. Our meetings will be a combination of social events and technical discussions, taking place in informal settings. We will bring in people who have been involved in planning (both from the public and private sectors) for several years, to interact with YPG members and to provide information geared toward young professionals.

The YPG is open to emerging planning professionals and to students. Experienced planners are encouraged to participate as educators and mentors to YPG members. Membership in the YPG is free with a paid APA membership.  Learn more…


GPA Mentor Program

GPA and YPG are coordinating a Mentor Program. The 2016-2017 program is accepting applications now. The program has a flexible format so that mentors, mid-career planners, and emerging professionals can tailor their own experience. GPA members who are practicing planners at any career stage are encouraged to apply. Participants in the Pilot Program were overwhelmingly satisfied, and rated it 4.3 out of 5 overall.
