Young Professional Committee


What are you doing today to make a difference tomorrow?

The YPC is a group of young adults from across the Chicagoland area, dedicated to raising funds and awareness for Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center through events and programs in collaboration with the Development Department and Museum Board of Directors liaisons. Committee activities include social, educational and professional development networking opportunities.

At Illinois Holocaust Museum, we honor the memory of all who were killed during the Holocaust by teaching universal lessons that combat hatred, prejudice, and indifference, and inspiring visitors to become Upstanders, as opposed to bystanders, who speak out for what’s right – turning powerful lessons of history into positive actions today. The Museum activates this mission through cutting-edge exhibitions and innovative public programming that brings scholars, activists and artists together with the community to discuss how to improve our world.

For more information on how to get involved with the Young Professional Committee, please email or call 847.967.4850.
