UpDayton inspires & empowers young professionals to create the Dayton, Ohio they want – a thriving place to live, work, play and learn.


Discover a city on the rise.

UpDayton's Discover Dayton bike tours, neighborhood hops, stage dives, and other events provide eye-opening experiences of our city and region. They’re great for college students, job candidates and new employees, recent college graduates, and anybody who just wants to know Dayton better!

Join the movement as a volunteer.

UpDayton inspires & empowers young professionals to become impactful difference makers in the community. We build and support volunteer teams who turn community project ideas into action and grow UpDayton’s impact through programs and events.

Lead the way to a better community.

The community relies on UpDayton to identify the next generation of civic leaders, cause champions, creative dreamers and talented doers. We develop and create opportunities for young Daytonians to take the leap into these roles both inside and outside our organization.
