Welcome to the Blue Water Young Professionals!

Blue Water Young Professionals (BWYP) is a non-profit community group that prides itself on enhancing the area we live, work and play in. In the spring of 2011, through our “I Will Stay If…” initiative, the BWYPs identified two key areas of focus with the help of area residents. The two main focus areas are downtown & nightlife enhancement and arts appreciation and growth. It is our belief that place-making is one of, if not THE key element in today’s economy. Developing an attractive place draws the type of young, creative people who in turn create jobs and stability for the future. We’re dedicated to the Blue Water Area and making this a place to live, work and play!
