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!
