Sips Happy Hour/ Always the first Wednesday!
"Sips" is SCYP signature event. The first Wednesday of every month young professionals from around the community gather to enjoy happy hour at various restaurants, or local businesses in Happy Valley. The event is a great way for people to mingle with new colleagues or catch up with old friends during our busy work lives. Partnering with our Outreach committee we also invite a local nonprofit to highlight the charity event SCYP will participate in that month. Come join us to unwind, network with your peers and enjoy a fun night with other young professionals.
The State College Young Professionals strive to enhance the community by providing an opportunity for professionals to network, volunteer, socialize and have fun. They work from the ground up by promoting local businesses and organizations and volunteering their services to make Happy Valley a great place to live, work and play.
The group provides a year-round forum for young professionals to connect, collaborate and learn from each other. They include business owners, lawyers, post-doctoral students, teachers, journalists and more.

As our membership has grown we have established Sips Ambassadors to help newcomers navigate their first SCYP event. When attending your first Sips you will be greeted at the welcome table where you will be checked in and then a SCYP Board member will offer to set you up with a Sips Ambassador. These Ambassadors are current SCYP members who will introduce you to some of the other members as well as share some information about our group as well as the outreach, social, sports, and other events we coordinate during the year.
