FOUNDED IN 2012

A GRASSROOTS MOVEMENT THAT EMPOWERS YOUNG PEOPLE TO IMPACT THEIR PEERS AND COMMUNITIES

NEWaukee founded the original YPWeek in 2012 in the city of Milwaukee. Over time and in partnership with dozens of organizations from across the country, YPWeek has expanded to include communities from all corners of the nation.

This grassroots movement aims to unite young people of all background with their peers and impact their communities in new and meaningful ways.

ABOUT NEWAUKEE

WE BUILD BELONGING

NEWaukee began in 2009 by a group of friends hosting bi-weekly gatherings for people new to the city of Milwaukee. Encouraged to create larger and larger experiences, they began hosting engaging events that showcased the city and drew audiences of thousands.

Companies took notice and started asking how NEWaukee could help them build that same sense of belonging for their brands.

Over the past decade, we’ve applied our three-step process of social architecture to help brands build transformational experiences, attract and engage key audiences, and more meaningfully tell their stories.
