Young Professionals International Network
(2013 Holiday Party)
The World Affairs Council’s Young Professional International Network (YPIN) brings together a diverse group of young people with a shared passion for the world around us. We host a wide range of networking and social events in and around Seattle, each with a unique international focus to help foster global understanding and collaboration.
YPIN is a membership-based network with unique benefits for our constituents. YPIN members are part of the World Affairs Council (WAC). WAC and YPIN are non-partisan associations with a common goal of offering programs and providing forums for discussion of critical world issues.
