SPARK Boston

We want to empower 20- to 35-year-olds to play a greater role in planning for the City’s future.

Boston is growing and changing in tremendous ways. Now, more than ever, we need to draw a larger and more diverse range of Boston’s young adults into the conversation. We need new tools and strategies to achieve the transformative impact that we desire.

We need to find new and innovative ways to engage Boston’s young people. That is what SPARK Boston represents. We’re asking our young people to help us set priorities, address City issues, and plan for Boston’s future. Twenty to thirty-five year olds, the millennial and increasingly Gen Z generations, make up more than 39% of Boston's residents. It's time to reclaim our civic power!

About us

​Our work is focused on connecting, innovating, and empowering:


We want to help young adults from diverse backgrounds build relationships. Our goal is to strengthen your personal and professional networks in Boston.


We plan to tap into this generation’s energy and creativity to rethink civic engagement in the digital age.


We’re engaging with the next generation of civic leaders and social entrepreneurs in City government.

Partner with us

We offer many partnership opportunities for groups and organizations wanting to collaborate with SPARK Boston. Email us to get the conversation started:

To better align with Boston's most popular lease cycle, we'll be welcoming new council members again in September 2022 for a year-long term concluding in September 2023. Applications for the 2022-2023 council will be released no later than June 2022. Please stay tuned and feel free to introduce yourself to us in the meantime.
