OYP Coworking Day @coLab

April 21 @ 8:00 am - 4:30 pm

Grow your network, meet new people and get out of the house to work with us at Okanagan coLab!

About this event

Looking to switch up your work-from-home routine? We’re partnering with the Okanagan coLab to offer you the chance to try a free day of coworking!

During the day, you’ll experience a taste of coworking, as well as some of coLab’s events where you can learn, share and network – and we’ll have a few OYP surprises!

What to expect:

You’ll be sitting at a workstation near fellow young professionals, all working independently – so bring your laptop, charger and any other work you want to do! coLab has a fantastic space with free wifi, coffee and tea, a kitchen and a lounge.

8 a.m. Doors Open

Come in anytime and get set up (Psst..you don’t have to come this early, you are welcome to get those extra zzz’s and join later in the morning)

12 p.m. OYP Lunch & Learn with Valley First

It’s financial literacy month! Brush up your knowledge and bring your lunch. Stay tuned for the topic!

5 p.m. – Doors Close

Finish your day whenever you choose, coLab doors close at 5 p.m.

Psst…got plans after work?

We think you should come over to the Greater Westside Board of Trade’s Business After Hours event at 5:30 p.m. OYP is going “Wingworking” at Business After Hours, held at Big Bear Innovation Centre and Urban Distilleries. (Registration coming soon)

The day will also be filled with delicious snacks, and a few surprises!
