Eastern Connecticut is a haven for all kinds of young people, from those working in a corporate setting to artists, teachers, military professionals, those running home-based businesses, entrepreneurs, healthcare providers, nonprofit employees and students. And the Young Professionals of Eastern CT (YPECT), a program of the Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut, is a haven for all this young talent. If you live or work in this region — or are considering a move here — check out the group’s many social events, career workshops and volunteer opportunities.
