About LYPA

What is Lypa?

LYPA was founded in July 2000 by eight young professionals in Lexington. Their mission was to create an organization that provided emphasis on personal, civic and professional development for local professionals between the ages of 21 – 40. Since this time, LYPA has grown into an organization of hundreds of young professionals in Lexington and the surrounding area.
