AIKEN, S.C. – Supporting the development of young nuclear professionals in the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA) is the purpose behind a new group forming at the Savannah River Site (SRS).

The Savannah River Chapter of North American – Young Generation in Nuclear (SR-YGN) will hold a kick-off meeting Jan. 26 in Aiken and all young professionals with 10 years of nuclear experience or less and between ages 20 and 36 are invited.

According to Aria Behrouzi, a Savannah River Remediation engineer and president of the leadership team, SR-YGN will bridge the generation gap among nuclear workers and promote the industry with open discussion and programming that will include technical talks, educational outreach and networking events.

“YGN unites young professionals who believe in nuclear science and technology to share the passion for a field that is alive and kicking,” Behrouzi said. “By facilitating the sharing of ideas and new technologies that could be applied at SRS for future missions, we hope to attract and retain a new generation of nuclear professionals.”

Membership is open to young professionals who work in the nuclear industry or are interested in it. Honorary memberships are available for nuclear professionals with more than 10 years experience in the industry.
