charlotte yp mixer

The Charlotte YP Mixer, hosted by the Young Affiliates of the Mint, is a city-wide event that invites you to explore the interests and missions of different Charlotte-area young professional organizations. Intentionally designed with an open layout, this high-energy mixer allows you network with a diverse crowd of other like-minded individuals while discovering everything our community has to offer. 

At our 4th Annual Charlotte YP Mixer in January 2019, we saw more than 650 participants and 30 YP organizations represented, making it the largest young professional event in town!

The Urbanites offer a platform for individuals to get informed and to take action to help with issues of affordable housing and homelessness in Charlotte. We feel that it is critical for the future leaders and stewards of our community to be cognizant of our neighbors who often go unnoticed, unseen and unheard. In learning about homelessness and housing, we hope to build an understanding across Charlotte that homelessness, and its devastating effects on individuals and families, can be solved. We accomplish this through education, service events, and regular email communication.  We invite you to join us for an event that fits your interest, and to sign up for our emails to stay informed about homelessness and affordable housing in Charlotte.
