Young Friends of the Preservation Alliance

yf_pagp_photoThe members of the Young Friends of the Preservation Alliance (YFPA) are young professionals with a passion for historic preservation. YFPA serves as a forum for preservationists and preservation enthusiasts to engage about regional preservation issues in social settings.

YFPA provides opportunities to:

  • meet and discuss preservation issues impacting our region;
  • engage in advocacy work including nominations of historic properties;
  • support and volunteer for Preservation Alliance initiatives; and
  • promote the value of historic preservation and the work of the Alliance

YFPA members work together to raise awareness of endangered or overlooked historic buildings, sites, and neighborhoods, such as our recent focus on the historic Sharswood neighborhood. Since YFPA launched in 2012, hundreds of young professionals have attended our networking opportunities, volunteer days, advocacy events, and educational tours including:

  • A window restoration project in the Parkside neighborhood with Habitat for Humanity
  • A bike tour of preservation-oriented development projects
  • A behind-the-scenes tour of Hill College House
  • A fundraiser at the Divine Lorraine
  • Architecture tours co-presented with Hidden City
