FOUNDED IN 2012

A GRASSROOTS MOVEMENT TO UNITE YOUNG PEOPLE WITH 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 their communities in new and meaningful ways.

2019 COMMUNITIES:

“Imagine having the ability to lift all of your favorite people and places up in front of a crowd of thousands to give them the recognition they deserve. That is what YPWeek means to me – a week-long celebration of who and what makes my community vibrant, innovative, and successful.”

BRANDI CUMMINGS, Y-LINK

“Over the years, participation in YPWeek has given our community the opportunity to not only say, ‘Hey, Fond du Lac is rad and we’re doing rad things!’ but also SHOW it. Not just in that week either, YPWeek has given lift to experiences that have been crafted year-round.”

JOE TRUESDALE, YPF

“[YPWeek] has helped me find my passion. I previously worked in marketing, and found through YPWeek that I really enjoyed planning events for my peers and getting connected to others in the community. I now have a career in event planning and it’s been amazing to get to do what I love everyday!”

CORINN PLOESSL, YPWEEK MADISON
