We are the next generation of leaders in Waukesha County—build your network now to enrich your career and personal life for years to come.

  • Professional Development programs – Meet our YP group to develop your professional skills to move forward in your career.
    • Pro-tip: Invite a friend or coworker to the program to help you feel comfortable networking and help others you know develop themselves professionally. These programs are a great opportunity to get to know coworkers outside of the normal office setting.
  • Emerging Leaders of Waukesha County – This annual awards program honors YPs who live or work in Waukesha County and who are creating and inspiring a better vision for the future. We celebrate the strides the award recipients are taking to further themselves personally and professionally by showing initiative, determination and commitment.
