The Patchogue Young Professionals is part of the Greater Patchogue Chamber of Commerce. It was established to encourage and support the development of like-minded professionals and entrepreneurs. We interpret “Young” as a mindset; not an age. Our goal is to continually provide resource, inspiration, and mentorship to those who seek to grow their careers in the Greater Patchogue community. With creative content and constant influence, we aim to help those in our network to thrive and continue advancing Patchogue. Our group has developed a wide reach and represents young professionals from Patchogue and across the Island and New York. We have also become a resource for Patchogue Medford High School. We organized a panel of local business owners and chamber members that spoke to an audience of business students. The high school found our panel so impactful that we have been asked to return for a larger audience, and asked to serve as an advisory board to their business curriculum.
