Young Professionals
Leadership Group

The Young Professionals Leadership Group (YPLG) is The Art Therapy Project’s most culturally engaged and civil minded supporters under age 40. We are passionate about connecting people with art and mental health services through art therapy initiatives. The YPLG seeks to advance The Art Therapy Project’s mission through spreading awareness as well as financial support to make their wide range of programs possible.

In 2018, all funds raised by the YPLG will be designated for art therapy programs for female sexual assault survivors and mothers/children who have escaped domestic violence.

Volunteer-driven, The Young Professionals Leadership Group is always looking for new members and new ideas.

All members of the YPLG commit to attending a minimum of one fundraising event and participating in a minimum of one volunteer opportunity every year.

If you are interested in joining The Young Professionals Leadership Group or hosting an event, please email us at

As informed advocates of both art therapy and The Art Therapy Project’s mission, members of the Young Professionals Leadership Board cultivate a forum for young professionals to participate in a variety of educational and social activities and act as a medium to enhance an understanding and appreciation of art therapy and the impact it imparts.
