Welcome to the group!
We created this group for people to meet new friends and participate in different activities around the South Florida area.
Our group is geared towards people ages 21-49 who are new and old to the Palm Beach County area.
We are a fun group of outgoing, friendly people!
Some of the activities we host include kayaking, concerts, board games, bar hopping, going out to clubs, stand up paddle boarding, dancing, movies, live music, special events, painting, and so much more!
RSVP to an event today and start joining in on the fun!
If you have an event idea we would love to hear it, but we welcome all members to host their own events.

The Purpose of the Young Newbies of PBC (YNPBC)
- YNPBC is a group dedicated to helping locals in their 20s , 30s, and 40s to meet cool people and find fun things to do in the area.
- YNPBC is not a dating or hookup service. While we by no means discourage dating within the group, it is important that all members maintain a level of respect for one another and not treat other members purely as sexual targets.
o YNPBC does not charge a membership fee. However a majority of events, by their own nature, cost money to some extent, and group members are expected to pay their own way.
o The only requirement to join YNPBC is that a new member must be between the ages of 21 and 49 at the time he/she joins the group. Many of our events include going to places where you must be of legal drinking age (21+) to get in. We do not follow an “aging out” policy, meaning a group member will not be banned from the group simply because he/she turned 50 sometime after they joined YNPBC.
- Policy on Guests/+1s
o Group members may invite guests who are not group members themselves YNPBC events up to three times per guest. If after the third event, a particular guest wishes to attend future YNPBC events, he/she must join the group.
o Group members may not invite people who have been banned from the group to YNPBC events (this will be explained in more detail in the “Infractions” section)
- Only organizers or appointed event organizers can schedule YNPBC events.
- Ideas for events are always welcome. If any group member who is not an organizer has an idea for YNPBC event, they should send a private Meetup message to the whole organizer corp.
- If it seems apparent that the member suggesting the event should be the event host, the organizer corp. may appoint “Event Organizer” status to that group member.
- Whoever takes on the role of “Event Host” of a YNPBC event, must actually attend the event unless an emergency prevents him/her from attending, in which case the Event Host should notify the event attendees via the event comment page. Repeated “No-Show Event Hosts” will not be allowed to host events for a period of time.
- The following is a list of infractions that will cause the co-organizers to conduct a disciplinary conference as described below:
1) Sexual harassment of anyone during a YNPBC event, whether or not the victim of said harassment is a group member;
2) Harassment, threatening, and/or stalking of a fellow group member to the extent that the group member being harassed/threatened/stalked is discouraged from further involvement with the group out of concern for his/her safety and well-being;
3) Maliciously bad-mouthing or defaming the group or any group member. This is beyond simply expressing a negative opinion of the group or a group member. This is about spreading libelous, slanderous, or otherwise malicious comments, rumors, or stories about a group member made for the purpose alienating, attacking, or otherwise preventing said group member from enjoying the group;
4) Any conduct deemed to be outrageous, especially such conduct that endangers the health or well-being of any person (regardless of whether or not said person is a group member) or conduct that requires intervention by law enforcement, security guard, or any other person charged with intervening in outrageous conduct;
5) Knowingly helping a disciplined member or ex-member circumvent the disciplinary process by inviting them out to a YNPBC event while said disciplined member is either suspended or banned from the group; and
6) Any other conduct which the organizers have a reasonable belief to be detrimental to the functioning of the group as a whole and the achievement of the group’s purpose.
- When an organizer receives report of a group member committing an infraction, an organizer will first try to establish the accuracy of such report. When it is determined that there is enough information and evidence of the likelihood of that group member committing said infraction, the head organizer will appoint three co-organizers to decide what disciplinary route to take with the group member. After discussion takes place, the appointed co-organizers will come to one of three routes of discipline:
1) Give the group member a warning not to commit the infraction in the future;
2) Suspend the member for a minimum of one month; or
3) Permanently ban the group member from the group.
- Factors which will be considered in determining what disciplinary action will be taken will include, but will not be limited to:
1) Whether this is a first-time offense or a repeated offense;
2) Whether the group member has been warned or disciplined of prior infractions or other bad conduct;
3) The severity of the infraction;
4) The apparent likelihood of the group member committing the same or similar infraction in the future;
5) The effect said infraction may have had or will have on the well-being of the group as a whole;
6) Whether the infraction raises any concerns about the safety or well-being of any or all group members; and/or
7) Any other factor that is reasonably believed to be influential in the decision-making process.
