Tickets are now on sale for Connect With St. Louis, FOCUS St. Louis' annual educational and networking event for young professionals! This year, we'll explore different paths to leadership - in your career, in the community and in the civic space. Learn from talented and passionate young leaders in our region who are charting their own course and making a difference, and connect with peers from across industries and sectors. Come prepared to get inspired and involved!

Following a keynote with author, social entrepreneur and networking expert Keisha Mabry, breakout sessions will include: 

Hyper-Local Politics

We know you don't have to be mayor to make a difference, but where do you start? This panel will highlight individuals who have gotten involved in their local government committees, councils, neighborhood associations etc. to help young professionals understand how they can flex their civic muscles.

Forging Your Own Path

Nowadays, career paths are rarely linear. We will hear from trail-blazers whose winding career paths have been driven by a personal mission, and perhaps have led to self-designed opportunities to serve an unmet need.

Nonprofit Involvement: Thinking Outside The Box

Finding a meaningful opportunity to give back can be harder than you'd think. Learn from leaders who have used their strengths to create opportunities for others through nonprofit involvement in order to help young professionals understand how they can do the same.
