Family Lifeline Young Professionals (FLYP)

 

What is FLYP?

FLYP is Family Lifeline’s young professional council with a mission to develop and empower young professionals to assume leadership roles at work and in the community. The council works to cultivate support for Family Lifeline and its programs through volunteer, social, and fundraising activities. FLYP is comprised of young professionals between the ages of 23 to 40 who are dedicated to Family Lifeline’s work in the community.

To date, the group has formed Strategy Teams focused on Events, Volunteers, and Public Awareness.
