Dozens of local Queens business professionals are volunteering at the event, including those who sit on The Club’s Young Professionals Committee (YPC). The Club’s YPC is group of local volunteers from companies such as Edward Jones, Amazon, Chip City Cookies, GrubHub, BQE Media & Marketing, NinjaBear NYC, United Print Group, Mega Development, Equinor, Bethpage Federal Credit Union, and more…

“Members of the YPC are excited to help bring together students and professionals to explore higher education and career opportunities,” said John Renda, an Edward Jones financial advisor and Co-Chair of Variety’s Young Professionals Committee.

“It’s a privilege to be able to inspire students to find their passion, pursue further education, and set a direction for their future career paths,” said John Sanchez, VP of BQE Media and Co-Chair of Variety’s Young Professionals Committee. “I remember being young and confused about my career path. I wish that I had the opportunity to meet more professionals in various industries during my middle and high school years,” Sanchez added.

The Variety Boys and Girls Club of Queens is located at 21-12 30th Rd in Astoria, Queens.
