Young Professionals Group

The Safe Connections Young Professionals Group sets the focus and priorities for the larger membership group, using methods such as organizing and overseeing the initiatives and events of the Safe Connections Young Professionals. On that account, the board meets monthly and board members are to fill two-year terms.

Formed in 2010, the group’s purpose is to engage young professionals in raising awareness and funds in order to reduce the impact and incidence of relationship violence and sexual assault throughout the St. Louis region. Last year they raised more than $45,000 to support the education, intervention and therapy services offered through Safe Connections, as well as spread awareness among hundreds of community members about our mission and services.

In order to view information on becoming a member or serving on the Safe Connections Young Professionals Board, please contact Cassandra Cooke at 314.646.7500 x101.
