MILWAUKEE -- Thousands of 20- and 30-somethings are expected to participate in workshops and social events being offered in Milwaukee this week as part of a program focusing on Millennials.

Young Professional Week begins Sunday with a series of events focused on Milwaukee. Other days will focus on water issues, women in leadership, economic development and the environment.

Organizer Angela Damiani says 1,500 people attended events last year when the program started, and 5,000 are expected this year based on responses so far.

Damiani says all but three of the 21 events are free, although people are asked to sign up in advance because some of the buildings and tours have space limitations.

People can sign up for events at the Young Professional Week website: .
