Get Involved


The Millennial generation is made of thinkers, doers, innovators, and creators - and right now the region needs our help to change the story of Northeast Indiana. We are a network of Millennials (roughly between the ages 15-25) committed to this endeavor.
   
Millennial 2020, an extension of Vision 2020, aims to get the region’s young people engaged in the visioning process currently underway in Northeast Indiana and empower them to create a place where we want to live.

There are endless ways Millennials can get involved in changing the story of Northeast Indiana. From joining the Millennial Leaders Alliance to participating in an upcoming Spark Tank to exploring what the region has to offer, we can make a difference in the region.
 

The Millennial Leaders Alliance

Millennial Leaders Alliance (MLA) is the leadership body of Millennial 2020. It is composed of 3-4 Millennials per county in Northeast Indiana's 10-county region, one MLA leader per county, at-large members and the Vision 2020 staff. The group is responsible for leading Millennial engagement in developing, attracting, and retaining talent in Northeast Indiana. Check out how the MLA is engaging Millennials throughout Northeast Indiana!

Spark Tank

In 2012 and 2013, the MLA hosted Spark Tank, an event similar to the TV show 'Shark Tank.' Millennials were challenged to come up with business ideas or community engagement opportunities and pitch them. After all the ideas were pitched, groups were formed and business plans or strategies were created. At the end of the day, all remaining groups presented their idea to a panel of judges. The top two ideas received $500 in seed money.
