Young Professional Council

The Benjamin Rose Young Professional Council (YPC) is a group of young leaders in the Greater Cleveland community who are passionate about the mission of Benjamin Rose, which is to serve as a trusted partner in the aging journey for individuals of all backgrounds as well as those who care for them. 

We promote this by encouraging philanthropy, networking, leadership opportunities, and engaging young professionals to develop programs and opportunities to support older adults and caregivers.
