As home to more than 70,000 millennials – defined as individuals born between 1979 and 2000 – Providence is poised to be a leader among American cities in drawing, developing, and keeping young residents millennials here in the Creative Capital.

The Task Force brought together five millennials with varying connections to and backgrounds in the Providence community. In addition to conducting research on millennials, Task Force members held a Twitter Town Hall, organized an Open House in City Hall, conducted several focus groups with a diverse population of local millennials, and distributed surveys to young professionals and current college students from across Providence’s diverse neighborhoods. The report will include all of the MTTF’s findings as well as recommendations on next steps to continue to make Providence a place where people of all ages want to Live, Work and Play.

#ChooseRI Membership Launch

#ChooseRI Membership Launch

  • Hanley's Ale House

Come join us in celebrating our membership launch! We’re celebrating our first birthday and we need your support to further grow a network of people passionate about improving Rhode Island.

Millennials are still struggling to #ChooseRI. Rhode Island ranked among the top 10 states in the country with millennial population lost in 2014. Most of us are sufffering from back-breaking student loan debt that prevents us from buying homes and starting businesses here. Rhode Island is starting to do a better job of investing in our generation—but by teaming up we can make this message resonate even stronger.

Buying a ticket to the event will provide you with a one year MPGRI membership.
