Did you know that 20-34 year olds make up one third of Boston’s population?  With that in mind, back in 2004, the City of Boston started ONEin3 – a program connects Boston’s young adults with resources related to home buying, business development, professional networking and civic engagement. A vital aspect of ONEin3 is the Council, which brings together a group of civic-minded young adults to work on projects designed to engage this demographic and maximize contributions made to the City by the 35% of Bostonians between the ages of 20-34.  The goal is to continue to build Boston as an inviting, connected, culturally rich and sustainable place for young people.
