UPCOMING EVENTS

YMF Spring Technical Tour – Hoover Dam
Hoover Dam Tour: Phx YMF is preparing to plan a tour of the Hoover Dam followed by a joint Happy Hour with the Las Vegas YMF! Our hope is to go on the tour in April or May. We still have many details to finalize, however we would like to know how many of our members would be interested in this event. We will tour the Dam, meet with LVYMF in Las Vegas and return the following day. Our goal is to keep the cost under $100/person.

Our mission is to help prepare the senior students make the transition between school and career.
