Board of Young Professionals


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 between the ages of 24 and 35 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 a different Wilmington Brewery each month. If you’re interested in joining the Board of Young Professionals, please complete the BYP Application or send an email to
