The Board of Young Professionals (BYP) of Communities In Schools of Cape Fear introduces young professionals to the programs and work of CIS.

The group is made up of professionals who are interested in giving back to their community, while gaining valuable board membership experience.

The goal is to promote the mission of CIS Cape Fear through volunteer, advocacy, and fundraising activities.

The group meets at 6:00 p.m. monthly at a different Wilmington brewery! If you’re interested in joining the Board of Young Professionals, please complete the BYP Application or send us an email.
