Started by NEWaukee(newaukee.com) in 2012, YPWeek is a weeklong platform for discovery, adventure, and meaningful conversations about the issues that matter among young people. “Since we started YPWeek in 2012, people have reached out to us wanting to learn how to host the program in their own city,” said Angela Damiani, CEO and co-founder of NEWaukee. “As we celebrate our 10th anniversary, it makes sense to share what we’ve learned to help other organizations better their communities.”
