In 2018, Young Professionals of PBKNY was created by Matthew Kriegsman to host events and initiatives to satisfy the preferences of young PBKNY alumni that were inducted into Phi Beta Kappa within the last fifteen years. The Committee works in collaboration with the National Phi Beta Kappa Society and the Phi Beta Kappa New York Association. We encourage recent inductees to join us, engage in leadership opportunities within the committee, and to become actively part of the greater Phi Beta Kappa community.

PBKNY is excited to launch the second cohort of the Mentorship Program for members. Whether you are interested in becoming a Mentee and/or Mentor, as part of our program, we are going to try our best to be helpful 'yentas' (matchmakers) and find you a match!
*Please note that if you participated as a mentee in the previous cycle, you may not participate again as a mentee, only as a mentor (and we'd encourage it if you are able to take on this challenge and be a leader!)
Read up about our first cohort which was a great success here in the Key Reporter!
We are looking forward to facilitating great conversations and personal growth. All active members of PBKNY are encouraged to apply to participate in the Mentorship Program. We intend to complete matching for a September/October program start.
