MEMBERS: Young Professionals Age 30+ | Kind-Hearted, Ambitious, Healthy Lifestyle, Community-Oriented

EVENTS: Social Networking - Business Networking - Hiking - Paddleboarding - Peleton Club - Book Club - Happy Hours - Bonfires

COSTS: SDYP is free to join but is a paid Meetup group. After 2+ events, it'd be greatly appreciated if members could be proactive about chipping in the $10+ annual membership fee per person. Guests may join for 1 event; the ask is then to join the group and be part of the SDYP community. The exception is partners/spouses/family members who are not on Meetup would not have to officially join but the SDYP member bringing guest should contribute their portion. A paid public group keeps the community and events fun, high quality, and safe. Membership dues supports site fees, community commitment, marketing fees, and other costs associated with organizing a public high quality young professional group (event supplies, negotiating group discounts at venues, marketing, time & effort from Main Organizer).

NO-SHOWS: If you No-Show to (2) events, this is a negative reflection on the group's show-rate, which currently runs at 85%. You will either consistently be moved to the "Waitlist", particularly for high demand events, or removed at discretion of Main Organizer & Event Hosts in the community. The group has community standards of reliability and professional conduct. No-Show Fees applicable for certain events and will be noted in event details.

ATTENDEE LIST ONLY/NO LURKING: With respect to the quality of the SDYP group and the time & effort that is invested in event preparation, please respect your Events Hosts and only show up to events when you have been confirmed on their final "GOING" list. We politely ask for "No Lurking".

Trivia Happy Hour in East Village 🍻🤔

Needs a location

  • Event is posted for sign-up list if interested in activity and will be coordinated by Event Host later.
  • Event will be limited to around 50ppl. Attendees will be balanced based on men, women, regular members, members who have contributed to hosting events in community, as well as new members for a dynamic mix.


Let's get together for another trivia night in East Village to build our Downtown community.

Our last 60ppl attended event w/ (4) SDYP teams was successful and 1 of our teams "The Bees Knees" won!🥇

Trivia goes from 7-9pm and you should participate in trivia to attend the event as we’ll be divided up in teams ahead of time for our reserved sections. Come with your trivia team spirit! Event Hosts will be there @ 6pm so anyone coming before trivia starts @ 7pm will have some meet & mingle time w/ the group.

Hike Cowles Mountain Trail ⛰☀

Needs a location

Let's hike the popular Cowles Mountain out-and-back trail near La Mesa, California. Generally considered a moderately challenging route, it takes an average of 2 hours to complete. This is a very popular area for hiking, mountain biking, and trail running; open year-round and is beautiful to visit anytime. We'll do the popular trail and add a 1 mile loop at the top and go up the steep path and come around the back of the mountain.

Our SDYP community does a monthly hiking club. Cedric & Suzy will be hosting the hike for the month of August.

  • Length: 4 miles
  • Elevation Gain: 908 feet
  • Difficulty: Moderate
  • Bring: H20, Snacks
  • Parking: Lot

All Trails Link:

We will also be having lunch/drinks afterwards that is optional. TBD the time & place. Closer to the date, we will have people comment on the board that they are still planning on hiking and if joining for lunch.

Peleton Pedaling Club 🚴‍♀️🚴‍♂️

Location visible to members

  • Date on Calender is not Date & Time of session. This post is to get sign-ups going so we can coordinate cycle classes and get on a chat together.

Our Peleton Pedaling Club currently has 15 active members in the chat! We're all local San Diegans that want to keep each other accountable for cycling.

Once you sign up, Event Host will try to coordinate first ride w/ you and introduce you to the group. Please also keep an eye out on the message board as that’s where we’ll also post info for our rides for 1st timers to join in prior to being in the chat 👌🏼


"Tick Tock": Business Networking 📇🤝

Needs a location

  • Date on calender is NOT final date. Event is posted for sign-up list and will be coordinated by Event Hosts later.

New Instagram page is up! @sandiegoyp

Let's get together for a Business Networking event.

Everyone introduces themselves with a quick 3-5 minute elevator pitch ("Tick Tock") and after sharing with the group the ideal customer/clients they'd like to connect with, further connecting can occur after quick introductions.

We will also have a fishbowl where people can drop their cards (optional) and a follow-up will be sent out with contact info. There are Happy Hour specials from 3-6:30pm for those that are able to arrive earlier.

Looking forward to another great "Tick Tock" Business Networking event! Great way for young professionals to connect in a casual atmosphere.
