GYP Gathers is an unstructured, casual way for young professionals in Gwinnett to find and build community. Whether you’re new in town or simply need a new place to hang with your friends, we hope that you come and gather with us! These gatherings range from lunch hangouts, to hiking trips, to concerts, and everything in between. There is no registration fee associated with these events, however, each young professional will be responsible for paying for their own meal, excursion, etc.
