The Oriental Institute's Young Professional (YP) group is a vibrant community of young people who support the overall mission and programs of the Oriental Institute. This special membership category is designed to give emerging civic leaders a meaningful way to engage with the Oriental Institute, one of Chicago leading cultural institutions. The YP is intended for anyone between the ages of 21-45 passionate about the history of the ancient Middle East. YP members receive exclusive invitations to educational, social, networking, and volunteer activities hosted by the world’s foremost academics.
Join us today and explore more at events designed specifically for Young Professionals. Past events have included behind the scenes tours, demon scavenger hunts, private visits to Chicago cultural institutions, meet and greets with Oriental Institute scholars, beer and wine tastings, dinners with archeologists, and much more.
