Welcome to Cleveland!


Apply now for the 2nd class of Welcome to Cleveland!

Are you new to Cleveland? The Cleveland Professional 20/30 Club is seeking newcomers, transplants, and boomerangers, ages 25-45, to join the second cohort of Welcome to Cleveland. If you moved here anytime in the last few years and are looking to learn more about Cleveland and meet new friends, we'd love to have you. 

"Welcome to Cleveland" is a four-month program designed to help young professionals fall in love with the city. Each event will represent one of the 20/30 Club’s Pillars: Education, Social, Networking, and Philanthropy. The Club believes that each pillar is an important aspect for helping young professionals build and develop their careers. The program will help young professionals get established in Cleveland by meeting local leaders, learning about volunteer opportunities, and making meaningful friendships and business connections.

The program begins with a welcome brunch at Adega where everyone will meet and get introduced. All program participants have access to a private Facebook messenger chat where participants can connect during the four-month program. The program features four structured and professional events and 2-4 fun and casual events. 

Program Event Highlights:

Program kick-off brunch: Meet your fellow classmates.

Fun Day: Visit some neighborhood bakeries.
Social: Visit a cool new bar or restaurant in Cleveland.
Education: Participate in a walking tour of a neighborhood or visit a local museum.
Networking: Sit down for dinner with a CEO in the community.
