DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Dayton’s largest service project for young professionals is happening Friday.
Nearly 150 volunteers are expected at the 13th annual Generation Dayton Day.
The event allows young professionals to volunteer with local non-profits.
The focus of this year’s event will be closing the skills gap to make sure dayton’s work force can compete for the best jobs.
“The non-profits we’re helping do a lot of work in that space to make sure that workers we have available looking for jobs in the area have the skills that our businesses need,” Holly Allen, the Director of Marketing and Communcations for the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce said.
Generation Dayton members will volunteer at several local non-profits, ncluding Artemis Center for Alternatives to Domestic Violence, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Miami Valley, Catholic Social Services of the Miami Valley, Clothes that Work!, Daybreak Inc., Dayton Metro Library, East End Community Services, Goodwill Easter Seals Miami Valley, St. Vincent DePaul Society-Dayton District, United Rehabilitation Services, YWCA Dayton, and more.
The event is open to members and non-members of Generation Dayton, a program of the Dayton Area
Chamber of Commerce. Generation Dayton is a diverse organization of talented young professionals who live and work in the Dayton region.
