Our Mission

Young Professionals for CARE is dedicated to supporting CARE and its mission to end global poverty.  Whether artists or lawyers, bankers or performers, young professionals have the knowledge, the power and the passion to advance health and prosperity in the worlds poorest communities.  Through fundraising, advocacy, education, discussion and a range of social activities, we engage individuals with shared values and sensibilities, and connect them to global efforts to empower people to overcome poverty.


About CARE: CARE is a leading humanitarian organization fighting poverty in more than 70 countries around the world.  CAREs mission is to serve individuals and families in the poorest communities by drawing strength from its global diversity, resources and 63 years of experience. CARE places special focus on working alongside poor women because, equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty.  CARE promotes innovative solutions and is an advocate for global responsibility.



Our Membership

Young Professionals for CARE is a diverse community of CARE supportersalmost as diverse as the individuals whom CARE strengthens and empowers around the world.  Led by a volunteer steering committee, our core membership consists of hundreds of young professionals in their twenties and thirties. We range from investment bankers to graphic designers; from journalists to lawyers and photographers.  We share a passion for CAREs commitment to building a world of hope, tolerance and social justiceand we work to engage families, friends and colleagues in that effort.  We consider the diversity of our membership and the unity of our conviction to be our greatest strengths.
