Mentor Led

Mentors make sure you get the most out of each experience. They host events, lead adventures, make introductions, and nurture the community as they facilitate growth, sharing, and action taking at every event.

Hyper Local

We support small businesses and work with local business owners to craft truly unique experiences for you to give you insights into all the Triangle has to offer. This boosts the local economy while revealing its hidden gems.

Curated Experiences

Our handcrafted experiences, like this backstage tour, lead to meaningful moments with others who share your same values. This is how real connections are made. You don't have to do anything except show up and participate.

A Note From Our Founder

Hi, I'm Karen, the Founder of PEACHLY.

I'm glad you're here and wanted to take a moment to tell you about why it's important to me that we have an application.

PEACHLY is all about helping people grow personally and professionally so they can lead more meaningful lives.

To do that well, I feel it is important for our team to meet each and every person who wants to join PEACHLY. Personal connection is what this community is all about. We don't ever want you to feel like a dollar sign, anonymous, or invisible. The best way for us to make sure that never happens is to meet you, talk to you, hear your stories, find out what you want from PEACHLY and then make sure we give that to you.

Not only that, we want members who share our values, who are ready to show up, take action, participate, contribute, and make PEACHLY an inclusive place where we empower each other to reach our full potential in a safe, supportive, thriving environment.

If that sounds like you, and you're ready to build some great relationships, we want to meet you!


Submit your application to get started.

Love,

Peachly

Stephan Sieg

Content Strategist & Arts Curator

Stephan is a Visual Artist and recognized subject matter expert within the visual art and design disciplines. When he's not creating great content for Peachly, he's creating new pieces in his studio, the latest of which is a statement on work in progress and thoughts left behind.
