The Young Professionals of Pella (YP of Pella) is a group of young, active, civic minded professionals who have a clear vision of Pella’s future as a great place to live, work, and play.


In the summer of 2006, 4 local young professionals in the City of Pella were asked to start a group to focus on social networking in the community for the age range 20s-30s. This came about after a community survey revealed the need for activities for young adults in the work force that didn’t focus specifically on families. Since then, the organization has grown rapidly and now has several hundred members.


YP of Pella serves as a catalyst to grow personal and community connections for young professionals; making Pella a better place to live, work and play.
