Gather. Network. Grow. Get Involved

About Terre Haute Young Leaders

THYL hosts nearly 30 events every year. These include educational events with our monthly luncheons, panel events and our monthly networking events along with other small group meet ups and volunteer opportunities.


Terre Haute Young Leaders began in 2006 under the leadership of the Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce focusing on preserving, protecting and promoting a business-friendly environment for the community’s young professionals.

Since that time THYL has raised more than $60,000 and hosted a number of community events including Bark In The Park, Dueling Pianos and our most recent Leadership Conference.

The Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce believes in the importance of retaining talent for local businesses. The Terre Haute Young Leaders committee is a professional development program of the chamber that aims to support young talent and provide them with professional development and networking opportunities. From educational seminars to social networking activities, Terre Haute Young Leaders works to captivate the young professional audience and initiate their involvement in the local business community.  The mission of the Terre Haute Young Leaders is to motivate young professionals to become more engaged in our community.


THYL is committed to providing an atmosphere for young professionals and leaders to gather and network. We want to encourage relationship building between professionals who might not otherwise meet in standard professional circles and not force those who choose not to network while attending an event.

As a member of THYL, you’ll have opportunities to grow professionally and advance your career through interactive programs, roundtables and panel discussions with local business leaders and government officials.

THYL and the Chamber of Commerce recognize the opportunity for young leaders to become more involved in our community in several ways. Together, we are dedicated to identifying and facilitating those opportunities. As young professionals and leaders of the next generation, the members of THYL provide a crucial voice right here in the Wabash Valley.
