What do you love most about your city? 
I love that Sheboygan is home to a lot of great companies. Did you know that foam cheese heads are made by a company in Sheboygan? Johnsonville, Sargento Foods Inc., Kohler Co., Bemis Manufacturing Company - the list goes on and on. I could go across the world and still see products made in Sheboygan. It's like you get a sense of home everywhere you go. Read more here .
Coastal Conversations
CJ Grace

“I create a vision of the way things could be, then work with others to implement that,” she said.

But when asked what, if anything, she’d improve about Sheboygan, Grace paused.

“There really isn’t anything I’d change,” she said after a moment’s reflection. “I love it here — I’ve never seen another area like this one. Read more here.

2018 Coastal Cares Nonprofit Program
Inspire Your Heart With Art Night

Coastal YPN enjoyed a night of fellowship with the assisted living residents of the Sheboygan Senior Community

Each volunteer was paired with a resident to create a one-of-a-kind piece of art that is now displayed in the SSC art gallery for all to enjoy. 
The purpose of  Coastal Cares  is for Coastal YPN to partner with a nonprofit organization in co-creating a unique event --- an event that is tailored to the missions of each organization and provides opportunities for young professionals to serve as community stewards. 

Throughout year, we have been working integrally with the following Sheboygan County-area non-profit organizations in hopes that by connecting to a mission that resonates, we can join with other great people, create even more ways to get involved, and truly make a difference in our community:
On Deck
It all starts with a LITTLE… and it makes a BIG difference.
It’s estimated over 5000 kids in Sheboygan County live in homes falling just above the federal poverty level. With parents struggling to provide basics like housing, food, and health care, there often isn’t time left to provide kids guidance to build healthy relationships, attend school regularly and think about the future. That’s where you come in! Big Brothers Big Sisters of Sheboygan County invites you to do something BIG today and become a volunteer mentor. Visit https://www.bbbssc.org/our-programs/ to get started today!
