Why do Manitowoc Young Professional’s choose Manitowoc County to live, work and play?

Manitowoc County offers many amenities a young professional may need and want in a community to live, work and play! To live in Manitowoc County, the cost of living is very affordable. A very attractive component when one is looking to start a career or family.

The summer waves coming off of Lake Michigan has to be a favorite of Manitowoc County YP’s. It’s simply beautiful and the sunrises are to die for! We also have tons of festivals, especially in the summer. There is always something to do with family and friends!

Favorite thing about being a YP in Manitowoc County?

“In 2017, the Young Professionals of Manitowoc County planned over 15 events for YP’s to get involved in and experience Manitowoc County. These events ranged from a personal branding event to kayaking on the Manitowoc River. Our group continues to creatively serve the needs of the young professionals of our county with unique and exciting programming to help them connect, serve and grow as community leaders. We are excited for the great lineup of events that we have for YPWeek and beyond into summer, fall and winter!” – Stefanie Lighthall, Young Professional of Manitowoc County Committee Member & 2018 Chair
