9/24 @ Venu — Help artsy and entrepreneurial young Bostonians pursue their purpose

Come out, support a great organization, and get some culture while you’re at it!

One of ONEin3′s own is the founder of the Duplessy Foundation, a local non-profit with the mission to mentor 18-24 year olds not in four-year colleges with an interest in the arts and entrepreneurship.

To support their mentoring work, the Foundation is putting on a showcase featuring local comedians, fashion designers, chefs, and visual artists, in addition to letting more people know about our program. All the proceeds will go towards the Purpose Fellows program, which you can learn more about here:

The event is coming up this weekend! Show your support on Saturday (9/24) from 7-10pm at Venu (100 Warrenton St, Boston, MA 02116) in the theatre district. If you want to learn more, get tickets or donate, here is the link below:

Thanks ONEin3 Mayor’s Council member Derrick Duplessy for word about the event and for putting the whole thing together!


The Future Landscape of Boston…

…is in our hands. OK, maybe not completely, yet. But young people in Boston do have a voice in the way the city will take shape in years to come. One great way to get involved in that dialogue is through the Urban Land Institute, which has a Young Leaders Group just for folks under 35. That’s us!

The Urban Land Institute is a multidisciplinary real estate forum that facilitates the open exchange of ideas, information and experience among local, national, and international industry leaders and policy makers dedicated to creating better places. You can find more info about the ULI overall and their Young Leaders Group here:

Also they have a walking tour of Washington Street coming up on 9/21. More info available through their website. Go & enjoy that great Boston history we’re always hearing so much about!
