Young Professionals

The Young Professionals network gives enthusiastic young people an opportunity to work together to support GPFA’s goals. Through this network, young people can become involved in the issues that GPFA cares about and meet like-minded individuals who share the GPFA vision for a better Afghanistan. The network’s membership ranges from working young people to New York City college students willing to lend their energy, expertise and advocacy to GPFA’s efforts.

With the help of New York University’s Afghan Student Association, the inaugural class of Young Professionals gathered in 2010 to learn about the challenges and opportunities faced by Afghanistan.
