2020 Summit Fbcover

It's Time to #ShapeYourCape!

The Shape Your Cape Summit is BACK for its fifth year on April 9th! That's right - we've been working to shape Cape Cod into a vibrant place to live and work for young professionals, year-round, for five years. This year, we're excited to continue facilitating forward-thinking conversation, interactive learning opportunities, and community connections at the ONLY conference created for - and by - the Cape's young workforce community.

Topics at this year's event will range from career development to civic engagement to work/life balance. The event is designed to further regional understanding and action around a variety of issues that impact quality of life and career opportunity for young people living and working on Cape Cod.

The 2020 Summit is presented with generous support from our sponsor, The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod. Thank you for making this event possible!

Melody Warnick’s book This Is Where You Belong: Finding Home Wherever You Are, is a practical guide to loving the place where you live. Melody's book has been featured in the New York Times, Time magazine, Fast Company, Psychology Today, and others. Described by Richard Florida as “an important book for so many people who are choosing their place to live,” This Is Where You Belong explores the groundbreaking concept of place attachment and leads longtime residents and newcomers alike to commit to a more passionate relationship with their community.
