Social And Professional Networking With A Purpose

Candlelighters’ Young Professional’s Group was created to connect Houston area twenty and thirty-something professionals through philanthropy in support of Candlelighters’ mission: to provide emotional, educational and practical assistance to families of children with cancer treated at the Texas Medical Center. Candlelighters provides a unique experience for Candlelighters’ Young Professional Group members to directly impact families in Houston.

Candlelighters’ Young Professional Group members enjoy the benefits of social and peer networking while demonstrating their commitment to their community through fundraising and volunteerism. Candlelighters’ Young Professionals Group members are also given the opportunity to develop and enhance their leadership skills by serving on a Candlelighters committee or board.
