If you've asked yourself in the past few months, «how can I get involved,» make your first stop our Civic Engagement Workshop. Our community has a lot of challenges. You have a vision for Boston and how we can tackle those hurdles. City Hall, the State House and beyond want to hear your solutions and thoughts. Let's get you the tools you need to start that conversation.
The Boston Civic Engagement Workshop is a partnership between SPARK Boston and Generation Citizen to teach civics in Boston. Using Generation Citizen's action-based civics framework, this workshop will teach millennials that they can (and should!) have an active dialogue with their civic groups & elected officials. Imagine Boston 2030, Boston Bikes & more will share stories of successful civic engagement.
