The Fenway Young Professionals, a group affiliated with the Fenway Civic Association, was recently featured on Boston.com in the Fenway/Kenmore section. The article describes the origins of the group, its mission, and its vision for the future.
“This group is a good introduction to becoming more involved in an urban neighborhood,” said Matthew Brooks, a member of the Young Professionals steering committee and a board member of the Fenway Civic Association. “It gives people an opportunity to be introduced to issues and how to help improve your community. Since it’s aimed at young professionals, it’s a more relaxed group, a more relaxed introduction.”
Fenway Young Professionals has helped to boost the membership of the civic association, which focuses on promoting and sustaining a vibrant Fenway neighborhood. At any given association event, about 20 members of the group are in attendance. Over the course of the next year, the group is hoping to further expand.
