Young Professionals Group

This is the inaugural year of the Mid-America chapter’s Young Professionals Group for CCFA.  We are committed to providing hope and inspiring action within the St. Louis community.  Comprised of men and women between the ages of 21-40, this young professionals group is the future of CCFA.


In addition to monthly happy hours at local bars and restaurants, each year the group will host an event, volunteer in chapter-wide activities, and come together to help create awareness for CCFA.


Join the CCFA Young Professionals Group, and be a part of our journey from the ground up.
