Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost to join YRP?
YRP membership is free - simply register on our website to join our community. We do not charge for our professional development events either. Some networking events are subsidised through our corporate partners.
How ‘young’ is young?
There is therefore no age limit to join YRP. We tend to aim our development events to professionals within their first 10 years in the industry.
Many of our members started their career in another industry (automotive, aerospace etc..) and only recently joined the rail industry.
Others have already worked in rail for 15+ years but love our events, our community and supporting young people and are welcome to become YRP members too.
How do you become a committee member?
YRP is run by passionate volunteers, based across the country and we always welcome additional support.
Each region has its own committee that meets monthly to plan events within the region. Find out more about joining our committee on our Get Involved page.
Is YRP a charity?
Young Rail Professionals is Not-for-dividend Company Limited by Guarantee which means we reinvest the profit raised through corporate membership into all our member activities.
Our company number is 08963662 and our registered office is Young Rail Professionals, Derby Carriage Works, Litchurch Lane, Derby, DE24 8AD.
How is YRP governed?
