United Young Professionals of Central Florida

Lead by Shapers Danny Rivera and Sarah Peerani, The Orlando Hub of Global Shapers is pioneering an initiative called “United Young Professionals of Central Florida”. It ensures to fuel collaboration amongst young leaders to create collective impact for Central Florida while also providing the opportunity to support each other. It is essential to not duplicate efforts and instead be practitioners of collaboration.

Our efforts to United Young Professionals was sparked shortly after noticing several groups throughout Central Florida have the same focus to give back to our region, are engaging the young leaders, and provide career development growth.

Our goal is to create a forum where all of these distinct groups and/or organizations can be practitioners of collaboration. We intend to show support for these existing organizations where possible while informing and empowering young local leaders to have their thumb on the pulse of Orlando. This has the potential to serve as an open forum for the millennial conversation in Orlando with local leaders, business executives, and elected officials
