What is our mission statement?

We are organized exclusively for recreational, social, educational, and charitable purposes.

There is no official age range for FYP-DC. However, we do require a minimum age of 21 due to some of our types of events (e.g. happy hours). Although most of our events will cater to the young professional, we encourage participation from anyone who wants to be involved.
