Young Professionals Council

The KCB Young Professionals Council is a counter part to the more traditional, formal Board of Trustees and empowers young professionals to participate and create their own vision for carrying out Keep Cincinnati Beautiful’s mission. The KCB YP Council is spearheading the development and growth of KCB’s young professional-aged donors and volunteers.  The KCB YP Council is the first of its kind for any Keep America Beautiful affiliate in the country.

*Everyone who considers themselves a Young Professional is welcome to join the Council for meetings! Regular meetings are hosted the second Monday of each month at 5:30pm at Higher Gravity in Northside. Check the events calendar for more details!
