Professional Young Visionaries of Tomorrow (PYVOT) is a young professionals and entrepreneurs group of Central Connecticut, operating in partnership with the Central Connecticut Chambers of Commerce and United Way of West Central Connecticut.
One thing the Millennial/Gen Z generation understands is how hard it is to find and connect with other like-driven young professionals, let alone in the Central Connecticut area. That is, until now.
PYVOT provides ways for young people to connect both professionally and socially, by organizing interesting networking events, social hangouts, and civic-minded volunteer efforts. Additionally, the group provides opportunities for professional development and acts as a regional resource to be leveraged by organizations and institutions in the area who may be seeking youth for boards and commissions, with PYVOT members getting first crack at these unique resume building opportunities.
PYVOT focuses its efforts in the 6 communities the Chambers represents — Bristol, Burlington, Wolcott, Farmington, Plymouth/Terryville, Bloomfield, and surrounding towns.
PYVOT aims to enhance the professional and personal lives of its members, and supports its members in their climb up the career and business ladder. Future group goals includes providing critical feedback to municipalities and businesses in the region seeking feedback on how to attract young professionals to their environments and businesses. PYVOT’s lasting impact will be made through its membership growing and attaining influential positions, and providing our energetic perspectives to ensure Central Connecticut is a live, work, shop, play destination for all to enjoy and settle.
Ultimately, PYVOT hopes to best serve our region’s young professionals in order to attract, empower, and grow the Young Professionals base in Connecticut. So if you are young, or have youthful energy, join our spirited effort to enhance professional connections, personal camaraderie, business opportunities, community efforts, the Central Connecticut region, and each other’s lives for the better.
