Mayor Walsh's ONEin3 Council now accepting applications
January 7, 2015
Today, Mayor Martin J. Walsh announced a call for applications for the 2015 ONEin3 Council. The ONEin3 Council is an action-oriented group charged with brainstorming, creating, and carrying out projects that directly impact the lives of Boston’s 20-34 year olds.
“We’re proud to have the highest percent of young adults out of any major city in the country,” said Mayor Walsh. “The ONEin3 Council gives us an opportunity to challenge young adults to think big and become neighborhood leaders. This population is diverse, well-educated, and full of ideas that will help us grow the city in a sustainable and positive way.”
The Council will spend the year using its talent and innovation to identify ways in which Boston can grow as an inviting, connected, culturally rich and sustainable place for young adults. Projects may include work on housing policy, economic development, public art and neighborhood engagement. Throughout the ONEin3 Council Term, members also hear from key members of the Mayor’s staff as well as leaders from within City Hall.
Last year’s ONEin3 Council was comprised of 31 Boston residents, including 16 women and 15 men, who live in 17 different neighborhoods across Boston and worked in 22 unique industries. Last year, the ONEin3 program received more than 300 applications for the Council, showing a robust interest for involvement and engagement.
Applications for the Council can be found here. For more information on the ONEin3 Program, please visit www.ONEin3Boston.com.
ONEin3 is supported by staff and resources from the Boston Redevelopment Authority.
