Cape Verdean Association of Boston cultivates the knowledge, skills, and capabilities of the numerous Cape Verdean young professionals in a social setting for this facet of the community to grow.  As more and more Cape Verdeans graduate from College and enter the workforce, the Young Professionals’ Network is essential to maintaining their sense of community and communal identity.  Additionally, the network provides a straightforward way for members to give back to the community in other facets.

Social Events

Three times a year, members of the network gather to celebrate the accomplishments of the group throughout the year.  These events, held in partnership with other organizations with a staff of many Cape Verdeans, provide a natural forum for recognition of the contributions of individual

members.  

 

Additionally, they attract new members and provide members who may be disconnected an opportunity to get

re-engaged.
