Having moved to Wilmington from California and not knowing anyone, PCYP has been hands down the best place to get connected in business, socially and in the community. The events are always packed and at fun and community-minded venues. Jenna and all of the Ambassadors make the events so great and so easy to get plugged in. There's no match for the value you provide. I would never want to miss a single event! In addition to the events, there's a lot the group does to serve and give back to the community. I've met a lot of wonderful people and made a lot of friends. I'm proud to be a member of PCYP!
I love PCYP and what it has done for our family! Great community to be a part of!
