Empowering young professionals to co-create our city

The Create Columbus Commission (CCC) empowers young professionals (YPs) to co-create our city.

The Columbus region is home to the 8th highest concentration of YPs among major U.S. metros. Elevating the YP voice is critical to our city’s economic success, urban density, and ability to attract new talent from across the nation.

Through strategic community building efforts, thought leadership, and a targeted YP micro-grants program, the CCC strives to make Columbus the next great American city for YPs to live, work, and play.

The CCC works to advocate and pursue initiatives focused on:

  • Economic prosperity
  • Urban pulse
  • Co-creation
