Diverse & Engaged Citizens
In March 2016, the City of High Point established a young professional’s taskforce in partnership with Business High Point - Chamber of Commerce to serve as a liaison between the young professional community and High Point’s city government. The taskforce, comprised of 12 young professionals, provides a platform for discussion, feedback and idea exchange on how to effectively engage this influential demographic in the city.
The taskforce meets monthly to discuss ways to engage young professionals in its four areas of focus.
Four Areas of Focus:
- Live: Connect HP promotes opportunities to improve the city’s look and experience through community efforts such as Keep High Point Beautiful and City of High Point forums on downtown development
- Work: Connect HP encourages entrepreneurism by promoting opportunities for small business development through the High Point Public Library and GTCC Small Business Center
- Play: Connect HP inspires young professionals to spend their free time in High Point by promoting special events in the city such as concerts, recreation sports teams and more
- Serve: Connect HP believes community service is a vital part of being attached to your community and therefore promotes opportunities for young professionals to volunteer
