    Events are monthly on the third Tuesday and take place in various Chamber member businesses. Pop-up join events and community service projects are added to the calendar regularly and members receive event notifications via newsletter. Annual memberships are available and you don't need to be a Chamber member to join CHYP!

    In 2016, CHYPers farmed at Benevolence Farm, volunteered at Habitat for Humanity ReStore, held a food drive for the Inter-Faith Council food pantry, played trivia on downtown businesses, did a improv workshop at The ArtsCenter...and that's just to name a few activities!
