celebrating the 'now & next' of Chinese American culture
The Young Professionals (YP) of MOCA is a volunteer-driven program celebrating the 'now & next' of Chinese American culture.
YPs are first and foremost MOCA ambassadors - curating and hosting cultural celebrations to galvanize support for the Museum. YPs are also community builders - connecting and gathering young professionals who share MOCA's sense of mission, vision and story.
Outside of MOCA, YPs can be found scaling New York's most dynamic industries, including media, finance, non-profits, among others. YPs are of diverse, far-flung roots but call New York City their home.
MOCA generously supports YPs with mentorship, resources, and networking opportunities, with the goal of cultivating the next generation of Asian American leaders.
Seed funding for MOCA's Young Professionals Program was generously provided by Deloitte.

This year, YPX 2011 celebrates cultural and community connections. The event will pose some big questions: what connects me to you? What connects us to the past? What connects the past to the future?
Come find out at the Lunar New Year Social! Stop by MOCA, share a drink, catch up with friends, and hear about projects and events for 2011. We are always looking for energy and ideas, so we warmly encourage your input and participation.
The YP Lunar New Year Social will take place at MOCA, 215 Centre Street, on Thursday, February 17th, at 6:30pm.
