SPARK Boston

We want to empower 20- to 34-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. Please join us in this exciting new venture.
