Born between 1980 and 2000, the millennial demographic is the currently the largest sector of the U.S. workforce with over 80 million strong and nearly 50% of the workforce. Millennials and generations to follow will make up 75% of the global workforce by 2025.  Houston Young Professionals Engage (HyPE) is a new initiative of the Robins Regional Chamber designed for enthusiastic and forward-thinking young professionals.

The purpose of HyPE is simple: create business opportunities, promote professional development, engage young professionals in their community, and support talent retention in the Middle Georgia community.

Monthly Dine & Dash Lunch Meet-Ups 

Dine & Dash luncheons will take place once a month on Fridays. These casual luncheons are a great opportunity to build relationships with peers and support Chamber member restaurants. Lunch locations will be updated on the Chamber’s event calendar here.

HyPE Sports is a brand new component of the Chamber’s young professional outreach and retention efforts. The goal of this initiative is to provide fun, meaningful connection opportunities for the dynamic young talent working, living, and playing in the Robins Region.

Our softball team played their first game last night, and we trust that this team is the first of many to come for HyPE – softball, volleyball, kickball, & who knows what else.  Our softball team will be playing all month long. Check out who’s on the team, game schedule, and more through the links below. If have any questions regarding anything HyPE-related, please contact Kerry Thompson.
