The Habitat Young Leaders and Professionals (HYLP) Program is a brand-new addition to our Habitat-affiliate here in Trenton. HYLP is a networking group of young professionals and college student leaders who will be looking to create connections through events held by the group, to not only aid the Habitat of Trenton through fundraising and other means, but also to create social networking among volunteers in the Greater Mercer County Area. HYLP is a relatively new initiative that has begun to take form within our neighboring affiliates, and with the Habitat of Trenton constantly looking for innovative solutions, the new Director of Community Outreach, Chelsea Naylor, has initialized this very unique program. Currently being spear-headed by professionals in the area along with college students from TCNJ, Rider, and Princeton, membership within the group is steadily rising with recruitment being one of the main issues on the agenda, but with the recent tragic incident caused by Hurricane Sandy along the Jersey Shore, the group is looking to organize resources to aid victims of the storm. With the program gradually taking shape, it looks like HYLP will become a very influential entity within our Habitat affiliate for years to come.
