UpDayton is a nonprofit striving to spur economic growth within the region by attracting and retaining young talent. They are committed to building a better Dayton by connecting young people to the city and engaging them in regional decision-making. Through fellowship, professional development, and the annual UpDayton Summit, They strive to rebuild hope and pride in our region.

At every Summit, UpDayton has launched many volunteer lead community projects by the young talent in our city. Our volunteers have planned and executed community beautification projects, web resources like Dayton Most Metro and DaytonINTERNS, as well as downtown scavenger hunts and more. UpDayton volunteers currently serve on the Activated Spaces planning team which is in charge of the Pop-Up Shop program. UpDayton’s Advocacy Committee serves as the voice of young people in our local political system and coordinates an Election Forum every year that is open to the public. We are focused on improving the quality of life in Dayton with the ideas and actions of our young people.
