connect2akron (c2a) is an event seeking to connect college students, recent graduates and young professionals with non-profit organizations in the Greater Akron region. c2a is a free event and will take place at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 1 at the Akron Civic Theater.
This initiative is a collaborative effort among the following organizations: ArtCetera, Downtown Akron Partnership Emerging Leaders, Torchbearers, Young Professionals of Akron, the Young Black Professionals Coalition and the Young Professionals Network of the Greater Akron Chamber. The goal? To increase the connectivity of our area’s young professional population and make a meaningful and lasting impact on our community.
Last year’s inaugural c2a event surpassed the planning committee’s expectations, both in number and enthusiasm. We hope to witness outstanding results this year as well!
Parking is available in the parking garage at the corner of State Street and Main Street, above Barley House. Please enter the event through the main entrance of the Civic off Main Street.
