Joliet Area Young Professionals


The Joliet Area Young Professionals strive to serve area professionals ages 21-40 through networking, professional development and community service events.

The Joliet Area Young Professionals is a division of the Joliet Region Chamber of Commerce and Industry. It was developed to establish social and professional opportunities. The Mission of the Joliet Area Young Professionals (JAYP) is to identify and satisfy the needs of professionals ages 21-40 in the greater Joliet Area. The organization will work to provide networking, educational programs and community service, while acting in unity with the goals and philosophies of the Joliet Region Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Our members range from recent grads to CEOs and everything in between. We are united by our desire to make the Joliet area a more vibrant place to live, work and play.

JAYP membership is open to anyone in the 21-40 age bracket. We are a division of the Joliet Chamber of Commerce, but chamber membership is not required to join.
