About Local Groups
JPro Local Groups exist in over 17 cities across the US and Canada. They enable professionals to come together around issues that matter most to them, and provide a powerful vehicle for community-wide capacity-building. Employees who participate in these professional development and network-building activities are more likely to bring value to their organizations in improved skills and leadership capacity, helpful connections to other organizations and communities and the creative, innovative ideas that come from collaboration and cross-sector networking.
The vitality and effectiveness of our Local Groups reflects the critical importance of direct, in-person and virtual connection with peers and mentors working in the same geographic community. While JPro Local Groups build on the programs, resources and partnership provided by JPro, locally-based activities are essential as a context for meaningful networking, the advancement of local issues and concerns, and a sense of belonging.

From the Press
Jewish community professionals, like the rest of the country, are facing much uncertainty as we work to reimagine what our work will look like in the coming weeks, months, and dare we say years. Here in St. Louis, I continue to see first-hand the importance of a local JPRO Group. When local communities invest in the JPRO model in partnership with JPRO Network, as highlighted here, there are both immediate and long-term benefits to our workforce, the organizations they serve, and the community as a whole.
