If you are a young professional in Dallas, chances are you do more than just your 9-to-5 job. It makes sense, if you think about it: Texas is a mecca for young people, who get rewarding jobs and earn a good living, so it’s only natural they want to give back by volunteering, serving in positions of leadership, and cultivating meaningful relationships with like-minded people who are the future of this great city.
For those who have yet to make their marks on the Dallas charity circuit, we’ve created the ultimate cheat sheet to the top YP groups in town. Whether your passion is the arts, education, cancer awareness, or eradicating domestic violence or hunger, you’ll be exercising your civic duty quicker than you can say “benevolence.”
