Who We Are:

To strive means to devote oneself passionately toward any goal, especially for a long period of time or against difficulties. Strivers are young professionals aged 19+ who are redefining how businesses communicate, network, and operate in Sault Ste. Marie & area. We are the future leaders of our community who promote and develop working relationships to maximise the potential of local young professionals.

StriveYPG is the voice of young professionals aged 19–40. As elected members of a subcommittee with the Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce, we work with other groups, individuals, and businesses in our community to provide networking events, learning development opportunities, and community involvement initiatives.
