Apollo Young Patrons Program


Who We Are

An eclectic mix of sophistication and swag, the Apollo Young Patrons (AYPs) are the next generation of Apollo leaders committed to the arts, networking, and professional development. This diverse group of young professionals, (ages 21-40) meet for performances, mixers, and fundraisers that are quite frankly off the charts.

AYP membership is $250 to $500 annually. Payments can be made annually, quarterly, or monthly.


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, Dick Parsons, 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.
