YPE organizers say the group’s main goal is to give young adults who work and live in Evanston an opportunity to expand their personal networks. The organization has three sections: business and talent, voice and action and events and info.

YPE President Ian Carswell and Voice and Action leader Jill Brazel discussed implementing more community-based activities, such as starting soup kitchens and adding more volunteer programs starting next year.

After the session at the salon, the group headed to Tommy Nevin’s Pub, for more pre-Halloween partying.
