Community service is important to our group. We are heavily involved with in raising money for the local Beacon with our annual Enchilada Fundraiser.

Established in 2007, the Young Professional League of Bourbon County seeks to create a synergy within Fort Scott that will improve the community and encourage business opportunities for generations to come.
It is a good way to meet other young people (primarily 45 and under) that care about Fort Scott and can come together with the common goal of keeping this community vibrant–encouraging our demographic to have a voice in community affairs.
