WE IGNITE YOUNG CHANGE-MAKERS
TO SHAPE AKRON

Torchbearers exists to enhance Greater Akron by investing in our emerging leaders and strengthening their connection to local non-profit organizations.

RING IN THE NEW YEAR WITH US!

Enjoy a night of dancing, food, and drinks with a 1920’s theme and help us raise funds for Torchbearers. Dine on heavy hors d’oeuvres, grab a drink at the speakeasy, strike a pose at the selfie station, and participate in the raffle for the chance to win a variety of baskets curated by our Board of Directors.

Torchbearers ignites the aspirations of members through leadership and development, community engagement, and service.

We are young leaders, between 25 and 39 years old, that are powerful, vibrant, and have a passion for impacting the Greater Akron community.

Our members are change-makers who believe in possibility and participate in creating a shared vision for evolving our community.

Torchbearers enables members to be a part of shaping Akron through leading initiatives and programs that have a concrete positive impact.
