updayton Joins with the City of Dayton’s Summer in the City

Combined Effort Works to Introduce College Interns to the
Benefits of Living and Working in the City

updayton has teamed with the City of Dayton to help make the second Summer in the City a success by providing local young professionals to act as mentors to college-aged students.

An initiative of the City of Dayton Commission office, Summer in the City reaches out to college students to demonstrate the advantages of living and working in the area through workshops, networking, and social activities over the course of an 11-week program. The program invites young professionals in the region to act as mentors in sharing their experiences with the summer interns. updayton has provided approximately one-third of the mentors participating in this year’s Summer in the City program.

updayton, a community empowerment organization, works to connect young talent to the city. updayton fights to combat the ‘brain drain’ of students coming to Dayton for an college education and then leaving the region for post-graduate employment. updayton volunteer mentors include scientists, lawyers, educators, activists, and artists; each participating member has been matched with an intern with similar professional goals.

Erin Fuller from the City Commission office has been facilitating the collaboration between updayton and the Summer in the City program. Fuller said, “updayton has been a wonderful asset for Summer in the City. We are excited to have updayton as a partner, and we look forward to strengthening our collaboration in upcoming years.”
