Events are monthly on the first Tuesday and take place in various Chamber member businesses. Pop-up joint 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 2018, CHYPers hosted a casino night to benefit Boomerang, cooked lunch for the families at Ronald McDonald House, worked on a home for Habitat for Humanity Orange County, held a toy drive for the Chapel Hill Service League, solicited canned food for TABLE, and so much more!
