The Young African Professionals I DC Network is a network of more than 10,000 young African professionals in the DC Metro Area. We establish a credible and trusted platform for the exchange of innovative ideas and approached for professional advancement.
YAP was founded in 2002-2003 by African professionals Segeni Ngethe, Nimu Waweru, and Tega Shivute. A year later, it was managed by Ehui Adovor, who is credited for building the organization’s name and reputation in the Washington, D.C. area.
Our mission is to connect young African professionals for career development and opportunity creation.
YAP is managed and operated by volunteers who are committed to connecting African professionals for career development and opportunity creation.
