(Jackson, Wyo.) - Tomorrow night, Young Professionals of the Tetons
will re-launch their organization with an event
at Smoking Iron BBQ at Hotel Jackson.
"The purpose of this group is to bring together young professionals. There
is no age limit who can attend. It is just a group to energize the young
professionals to work together, and share ideas and experiences of living
and working in Jackson," said Young Professionals of the Tetons Chairperson
Young Professionals of the Tetons was started by Don Watkins, Nathan Adams
and Courtney Gauthier in 2012. They were looking to start a networking
group for a demographic that they felt was underrepresented. After their
careers took off, they were unable to keep up with running the group.
Recently, Workforce Specialist for the Wyoming Department of Workforce
Services Will Smith decided to take over the organization.
"I fall in that demographic [of young professionals] and I think it is
important to have that resource available to community members," said Smith.
Smith hopes to host events through Young Professionals of the Tetons on
third Thursday of the month and hopes to launch a mentoring program.
"We hope to provide resources to this group by mentoring programs and
through networking events for those looking for their first full time
professional job in Jackson and those looking to call this place home,"
Tomorrow night, the group will host a Summer Social at the new Smoking Iron
BBQ at Hotel Jackson. The event will be 5:30 - 7 p.m. It is open to the
community and free for all to attend.
