The Mahoning Valley Young Professionals club is now accepting nominations for the 2019 25 Under 35 Awards. The deadline to submit an application is Nov. 30.

After 40 years of decline, Youngstown, Ohio, was one of America’s most distressed cities, with parks in disrepair, blocks of vacant houses lacking windows and doors, unmowed vacant lots used as dumps for rubbish of all sorts, even boats.

Whether it’s an after-school program for children, a blight-removal project in a distressed neighborhood or providing social services to the most vulnerable in the community, there’s a good chance that one of the philanthropic foundations in the area or their benefactors contributed to the effort.

People living around parks in the seventh ward may have noticed some changes lately. 

Stephanie Gilchrist eagerly led visitors Wednesday through the offices of Inspiring Minds Youngstown in the new Glenwood Business Center.
