2016 Cleveland Young Professionals Week Recap

CLE YP WeekNine months. That's how long it took Engage! Cleveland to plan this year's Cleveland Young Professionals Week. The week of June 20, 2016 may be one of the most memorable weeks for Cleveland. While the city celebrated a national championship, Engage! Cleveland celebrated the biggest and most unique CLE YP Week to date. Cleveland Young Professionals Week is Engage! Cleveland’s annual event highlighting all that Cleveland has to offer young professionals. Whether it’s enjoying a workout at the newest fitness studio, hearing from exciting speakers or discovering new venues downtown, Cleveland Young Professionals Week is all about getting YPs to truly experience Cleveland.

Our amazing staff and committee members created an impressive lineup of events ranging from rooftop yoga to dining and networking with some of Cleveland's top entrepreneurs. Over the course of seven days, EC engaged over 2,100 young professionals at 31 events across the Greater Cleveland area.

The week featured 14 morning workout events at the newest fitness studios, five lunch and learn events with some of Cleveland's top executives, 9 evening networking events that showcased some of the top venues and activities in the city, two community service volunteer days, and a city-wide scavenger hunt.

As a small nonprofit, Engage! Cleveland relies on the help of committee and board members and on the generous sponsorships and partnerships provided by Cleveland's local businesses. We want to thank everyone who supported, volunteered, attended, and participated in CLE YP Week. Without each and every one of these individuals, this week would not be as successful as it is today, in its 3rd year.

We have already heard some great feedback from our attendees and we are looking forward to using this feedback to make next year's CLE YP Week even better. Planning for the 4th Annual Cleveland Young Professionals Week will begin in September.
