WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Young Consultants of DC (YCDC) announces its Inaugural Fundraiser to take place on Thursday, June 17th at One Lounge, in Dupont Circle, Washington, DC.
YCDC hosts events across the Washington DC area under four distinct programs: Education and Careers, Community Service, Government and Politics, and Professional Networking. Through these programs, we collaborate with colleges and universities, charities, community coalitions, small businesses, other non-profits and corporations. We regularly host, sponsor, and promote events such as university recruiting, graduate program forums, special guest speakers, local sports outings, and professional networking opportunities.
YCDC invites you to join us for a night of drinks, friends, and giving back as we support two of our community service partners, Facilitating Leadership in Youth (FLY) and StreetWise Partners.
Facilitating Leadership in Youth is a vibrant, community-based nonprofit which provides vital youth services to one of DC’s most neglected neighborhoods. FLY seeks to address: educational deficiencies; insufficient peer and/or parental support; and youth violence, by providing a safe location for underserved youth to engage in educational and personal development opportunities.
StreetWise Partners works with top-notch corporations to build mentoring relationships between low-income individuals and volunteer business professionals. StreetWise Partners empowers low-income unemployed or underemployed young adults to build workplace skills and create sustainable employment networks as the bridge to a successful career.
All proceeds will benefit Facilitating Leadership in Youth and StreetWise Partners

In 2004, several recent college graduates entering into the consulting field wanted to find a better way to bring young professionals together. Believing that many young professionals shared similar passions, interests and hobbies, YCDC emerged as a premier organization to do just that. YCDC is an organization of young professionals who work mainly in the consulting field and are located in or around Washington, D.C. The goal of YCDC is to create an environment that allows members to educate themselves and others, build personal and professional relationships, and contribute to making a positive impact on the local community.
