Black Young Professionals of Metro Detroit is a growing organization which thrives on being open, welcoming, and inclusive. We champion the social anchoring, personal development, and civic engagement of young Black professionals throughout the region. Our mission is to develop a single cohesive community of young Black professionals.

Our General Member demographic is focused in the 21-42 age range. We are open to professionals, entrepreneurs, and students across all industries. A portion of our events are exclusive to membership and there are additional benefits listed below. You do not need to live in metro Detroit to be a supporting member.

Make Meaningful Connections in Detroit

Our promise to you as a member is to create opportunity for connections and to integrate you into a community. We believe connection is paramount to a thriving Black community in America today. We have to work with each other and find strength in connection. We know people leave Detroit when they don’t have anchoring through connection, so we’re dedicated to retaining talent through innovative activities and opportunities for connection. We are not just your “plug” for success we’re also your “outlet” for fun.
