Young Professionals Committee
The Jays Care Foundation's Young Professionals Committee (YPC) is a volunteer opportunity for Toronto's young professionals to utilize their leadership and management skills, creativity, passion, talent and social networks to engage in the Toronto Blue Jays community investment efforts to benefit Canada's children and youth. Presently 20 young professionals sit on the Committee and manage the strategic direction and development.
In 2013, the Young Professionals Committee launched the inaugural ChangeUp Campaign, a unique fundraising campaign that challenged individuals, groups and companies to pitch-in and change the way they interact with the communities around them by committing to complete an activity of their choice and solicit funds in support of Jays Care. The campaign concluded with the ChangeUp Celebration Event in a Rogers Centre luxury suite on September 12, 2013 when the Blue Jays took on the Angels. The YPC hosted 300 young professionals who participated in the campaign to celebrate and enjoy a fun night at the ballpark which included food and beverages, interactive activities and an opportunity to win great prizes!!
We are excited to announce the inaugural YPC ChangeUp Campaign was a tremendous success, raising over $117,000 in support of Jays Care! The funds raised through the ChangeUp are earmarked to fund the construction of a new community recreational facility which serves Thorncliffe and Flemingdon neighbourhoods. This facility will serve as a platform within these communities for inspiring children to be active, stay in school and be part of a team.
Thank you to our sponsors, fellow young professionals and friends who supported!
