Young Professional Advisory Council (YPAC)

The Mission of YPAC

The mission of the YPAC is to engage young professionals civically by identifying or creating programmatic or policy opportunities of importance to the young professionals of Green Bay and communicating with our elected officials those issues of importance to us, the young professionals of Green Bay. 


YPAC engages with young professionals, community members and organizations to understand what’s important to the modern young professional. Issues identified should impact the ability for the Greater Green Bay area to attract and retain professionals to the area. YPAC will leverage learnings from other communities and stay active in local development and policy proposals to isolate key issues.


Issues identified will be properly researched and examined. YPAC will involve impacted parties, conducting interviews and performing analysis with the intention of taking positions on matters of significance to young professionals. The positions should enhance the lives of young professionals – making the Greater Green Bay area a more desirable place to live and work.


YPAC gives young professionals a voice in the conversation; a voice to the Mayor of Green Bay and a voice to community members. This young professional perspective will be shared in various media platforms including local publications and social media with the goal of adding value to community conversations. All messages will be intended to educate and inspire action.
