About Us

Who We Are

Twin Tiers Young Professionals is a diverse group of young professionals - of all ages - living in the greater Elmira/Corning, NY area. Our goal is to provide opportunities to interact socially and to network, as well as to provide a chance for our members to become involved in their communities. We feel TTYP can help make the Twin Tiers a place our members are happy to call home.

Our Vision

The Corning Museum of Glass, Finger Lakes wine trails, Watkins Glen International, The Clemens Center, The Rockwell Museum of Western Art, The Arnot Art Museum. These are just a few of the attractions that make our area one of the top three tourist destinations in New York State. There is always something going on somewhere in the Twin Tiers, and we strive to promote the area and the great events taking place here to the young professional community.

What We Do

TTYP holds numerous events both to promote the area and help make it a nice place to live. Civic events have included: remodeling a house with Habitat For Humanity, Downtown Cleanup, Be Pink, Race For The Cure, and the Hunger Challenge at the Food Bank of the Southern Tier. We also organize social events, including our ‘Third Thursday’ social and a monthly Wine Club at one of our member’s homes. TTYP also fields sports teams, including in summer softball and winter broomball leagues.

How We Do It

We are a member-driven, nonprofit organization. All projects are conceived, planned and carried out by our members. Our projects typically fall into two major categories: Social Events and Community Outreach. The organization is guided by the Executive Committee, which administers the day-to-day operation of the group.

So Join Us!

We don’t ask a lot of our members. Find events that fit your needs, whether they be social, communuty outreash, or both. Invite others to participate as well. Membership is simple (we don’t have an age limit, and we don’t turn anyone away). Simply fill out the TTYP Membership Form and return it to us by mail with the annual membership fee. This fee allows us to defray administrative costs such as postage, advertising, attracting new members and hosting events.
