NWA Young Professionals
In 2005, the Northwest Arkansas Young Professionals (NWAYP) was formed as a non-profit corporation founded by young professionals in the community. Over the past 10 years we have brought together thousands of young professionals through our social and professional development events, volunteerism, and community service programs. Our goal at NWAYP is to invest in you and the community in which we live. We host multiple civic events each year and also support future professionals through a scholarship fund for first year college students. As we celebrate 10 years, NWAYP has only begun to scratch the surface of what we want to do in the community. We thank each and every one of our members for all the support over the years and we look forward to the great years ahead.
