Welcome to Y-Link!

Welcome to YLink!


YLink (Young Leaders in Kenosha) is an established young professionals (age 21-40) program managed by the Kenosha Area Business Alliance. The organization is driven by a volunteer leadership team of passionate young professionals who are closely tied to the Kenosha community through their personal and professional networks and interests.

YLink is emerging as one solution to attracting, retaining and developing talent in the Kenosha area. How? By connecting YPs to each other, while allowing them to have highly unique professional, social and community engagement experiences that showcase Kenosha’s best assets.

When young professionals are actively engaged with their community, the more likely they will stay and influence the trajectory of our region.

With almost one third of Kenosha’s population made up of YPs, YLink is impacting the next generation of leaders. We host several events each quarter. Highlights include the Future 5 Awards held annually in May and #YPWeek in April, plus our Nonprofit Board Prep Program and our College-to-Career Mentoring Program.

YLink is your resource to grow professionally, make connections in the Kenosha Area and give back to the community.

future5_logo_color_webWe are excited to host the 2017 Future 5 Young Professional Awards on Thursday, May 18, 2017 at the AVP Kenosha Aviation at the Kenosha Airport.
