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!

 

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
