What We Do
So, what does hYPe do and how can you get involved? hYPe is about making connections and engaging young professionals in our community. We host free, monthly events where you will meet a diverse group of YP’s, make new friends and professional contacts and get a behind-the-scenes look at businesses and organizations in Bloomington. It's a great way to meet new people and visit some cool places, especially if you're new to town!
We also provide opportunities to volunteer in the community - for example, we have organized Habitat for Humanity builds, volunteered at the Taste of Bloomington, and walked as a team for the annual Hoosiers Outrun Cancer 5k. One of hYPe’s goals is to retain talent in Bloomington – we want you to love where you live!
How To Connect With Us:
Our events typically take place the 2nd Wednesday of the month from 5:30-7:30pm. You do not have to be a Chamber member to attend hYPe events - they are open to anyone age 21-40 that live, work, and play in the Bloomington area. Can't wait to meet you at the next event!
Be sure to sign up for our hYPe email list to receive our monthly e-newsletter and event updates. We're super social, too - follow us on your favorite social media channels to see updates on events, programs and more!
