Networking and Professional Development

Our members hail from some of the most esteemed institutions in NYC: Credit Suisse, Sony Music Entertainment, CBS, Citi Group, JP Morgan Chase and Goldman Sachs. The AYPs consists of lawyers, investors, managers, artists, creatives, risk-takers, task-makers, movers and shakers.

Members have the opportunity to be in the room with influential New Yorkers like Apollo board members Willie Woods, T. Troy Dixon and Marcus Samuelson. Our annual board brunch allows members to connect with and learn from business titans with decades of experience.

Parties and Performances

From our Annual Gala and Board Holiday Parties to our late-night Harlem mixers and Rooftop events, AYPs also know how to leave work and reclaim the night.

A large part of the Apollo magic happens on our stage. We really never know who will be featured and what offering we’ll be able to surprise members with. AYPs have experienced, Alicia Keys, A$AP Ferg, Cam’ron and the Conan O’Brian show all for FREE. These offerings are in addition to premium seating and discounts to our main stage show.
