Bulletin Board Events
This page is a place for Young Professional or Management Club members to suggest their own events. There are a lot of events that we think our members would really enjoy, but maybe don’t meet the criteria for a formally organized YP or CMC event.
Looking to organize a pickup sporting game? Need a sub for a team? Know about a cool concert coming up, or really impressed with a volunteer opportunity and looking for others to join?
Use the form below to suggest upcoming events for other YP members.
(Please aim to submit ideas at least one week in advance)

- YP "Ladies Night" Volunteer Event 2019
We are partnering with the Girl Scouts of Southeastern Michigan for another fun night-out volunteering event! This is a great bonding opportunity for all the women in YP and a fun way inspire young women leaders of tomorrow. We did a similar event last year and we're looking forward to another great night!
This year's theme is "Mall Frenzy: Game Girl" and it is another “lock-in” style event full of activities that encourage creativity, independence, and exploration. We will be serving as strong female role models and having fun at the same time, helping girls in grades 4-12 to build knowledge and confidence. Please feel free to forward this information to anyone who might be interested in YP and/or this event! Gentlemen, if you know any ladies who might like to join us for this event, please share this page with them!
The event is from 10 pm on Saturday, March 23rd to 2:30 am the following morning. We’ll start by meeting up for coffee so you can get to know your fellow YP volunteers, then spend the rest of the evening helping the girl scouts with fun hands-on activities like:
- Creating a star finder
- A knot station, creating a Worldfriendship knot
- Creating a paperbag scrapbook of outdoor cooking recipes
- Game of identifying different kinds of trees and flowers
- Learning to sew two different stitches creating a flower and change holder
- Learning about velocity while making a paper airplane
- Astronomy stations
- Lip gloss station
- Price Is Right game show station- learning Financial literacy
All supplies will be prepared and ready at the stations and no special skills are needed.
If you are interested in volunteering, please sign up here and we’ll fill you in on the full details. Please respond no later than noon on Friday, March 9th, so we can let the event coordinator know how many people to expect.
And to all the gents who are bummed about not getting to make fun crafts with kids, don’t worry! YP will have other volunteer events coming up soon.
