YP groups from Fond du Lac, the Fox Cities, Green Bay, Manitowoc, Oshkosh and Sheboygan County will join other cities statewide in offering events aimed at uniting young people of all backgrounds with their peers and communities in new and meaningful ways.

The event, which got its start in 2012 with Milwaukee YP group NEWaukee, continues to grow and expand. This year, Atlanta, Chicago and Salt Lake City have joined with their own events.
