The Young Professionals Program is a team of young professionals who advance CEO’s mission through philanthropy and fundraising, volunteerism, and corporate engagement efforts. Members of our Young Professionals Program are committed to enhancing CEO’s employment services by lending their time, talent and treasure to the organization.

I had the opportunity to spend the summer of my MBA interning as a Farber Fellow at CEO in Oakland, CA. Everyday I learned firsthand from CEO participants about the inequities in our justice system and the systemic difficulty of reintegrating into society. More importantly, I learned the value of the CEO program to help the formerly incarcerated successfully find and keep employment and stability. Although I only spent 10 weeks at CEO during my internship, I knew my time with CEO was only beginning. I am excited to join the YPG to help further CEO's incredible mission and work.
