Young Professionals Board
The Young Professionals (“YoPro”) Board ignites passion and curiosity around outsider art, fostering the next generation of Intuit’s champions.
- To champion Intuit by activating our networks, inviting new audiences to Intuit’s exhibitions and programming
- To support Intuit’s programming and exhibitions through fundraising initiatives
- To create unique opportunities for YoPro board members to connect with each other and learn about outsider art
- To engage with a living artist, visiting them or inviting them to speak with us, at least once a year
Founded in 2018, the Young Professionals Board is encouraged to participate in and activate their networks with public Intuit programming throughout the year, including exhibition openings and public learning events. YoPros also participate in exclusive member and YoPro-organized events, including gallery crawls, adjudicating the Scholastic Arts Awards, quarterly meetings, YoPro picnics, the annual YoPro-hosted fundraiser and exclusive collection tour events, to name a few.
As of 2021, YoPro membership is around 20-25 members, and there is no limit to the number of members who may join.
