The American Young Professionals in Dubai group exists to help create a friendly and active social gathering of American expats living in Dubai. We hope all of our members participate frequently by joining our events and that we're able to build a great community of friends.

We host all kinds of events across Dubai and the UAE with activities to suit everyone's tastes and interests:

  • Dinner & Drinks
  • Social events ... Apartment parties, Bowling, US football viewing parties, etc
  • Active events ... Volleyball league team, Stand-up Paddle Boarding, etc
  • Exploring Dubai places & activities ... Bur Dubai & the Creek, The Palm, etc
  • Volunteering events ... serving our community at least once every 3 months

If you have any ideas for meetup events and activities that we should host, please reach out to one of the Event Organizers ... we're always looking for fresh ideas!

Our group is limited to US expats living in Dubai (American passports only!), but we are happy to recommend another great group for non-US expats, which is very active and hosts lots of fun events called the "Young Professionals in Dubai".

We do expect our members to be active, so if any member is inactive for 4 months or more, we remove them from the group ... this is just to keep our group highly engaged and participating in our events, which is the whole point.

We're excited to meet you in person, so get started by RSVP'ing for our next event now!! See you around Dubai soon!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
