Member Testimonials

 

This is a fabulous way to meet like-minded individuals while making a difference in our community. The leaders make this journey fun and easy!

 

I feel like I have less and less time, and PYP is a great way to combine being with talented, interesting, like-minded people, and also doing something great for a charity in our community. Combining funds really allows our members to make a big impact on a local organization. I am honored to be part of this group!

PYP Seattle is a great way to get more involved in the community in a variety of ways – as a financial contributor to a program/organization in need: as a neighbor getting to know others in the area in deeper and more meaningful ways; and as a woman banding together with other strong, successful women to really make a difference.

As a participant of PYP, it is empowering to be part of a group of like-minded women, each with diverse backgrounds and experiences, come together to give back in meaningful ways within our local community.

I feel more connected to Seattle’s local charities (or at least more knowledgeable). It was really inspiring to hear how passionate our PYP members are about the charities they support. I also loved the opportunity to get to know a few more women, and hope to connect with even more of the group in the future.

The impact we made as small group of women is commendable. PYP gives our peers a chance to show off the causes that are near and dear to their hearts and to learn about all the great organizations that are out in the Seattle area.
