Connecting Young Professionals Across the Great Lakes

​The Great Lakes Young Professionals Network (GLYPN) is a community of early- and mid-career professionals dedicated to the ecosystems and communities within the Great Lakes basin. Together, GLYPN members build relationships, exchange skills, and share opportunities to help inspire professional development and cultivate the next generation of Great Lakes leaders.


Building a Basin-Wide Network

Founded in 2021, GLYPN is a free and informal network of over 200 young professionals with shared interests in the Great Lakes and the surrounding ecosystems and communities. GLYPN provides opportunities for professional development and networking through events, peer-to-peer mentorship, and other leadership opportunities. From Duluth to Montreal, GLYPN provides a forum for members to connect, collaborate, and support each other.
