WELCOME TO OUR COMMONWEALTH

A Community

Social entrepreneurs. Community organizers. Educators. Technologists. Academics. Filmmakers. Fundraisers. Political staffers. Policy wonks. And so on. We are a community for the next generation of leadership in Greater Boston. 

We aspire to create a community that represents the extraordinary diversity of Boston. We believe social change is only accomplished when it is inclusive so we seek emerging leaders from a wide range of backgrounds. 

It is our belief we can accomplish tremendous things here if the right people know each other and if they build a relationship based first in friendship.

To achieve our mission, we organize weekend retreats to set this plan in motion. Stress free. No planning. Simple, uncomplicated fun. Wish us luck. 

We're inspired by groups such as StartingBloc, deceler8, Renaissance Weekend, ONEin3Camp Grounded and many others. 

Outdoor Activities

Home Cooked Meals

Lots of Games

UPCOMING RETREATS

We do not have any scheduled retreats. Please check back for our retreats for the Fall and Winter of 2015. 

*The total cost for the trip is $200. This covers lodging, food and transportation. This is a volunteer run organization and we are grateful for the generous support of The Boston Foundation which allow us to subsidize our retreats. 


WHAT HAPPENS DURING A RETREAT? 

You are joined by ten other civically engaged, collaborative problem solvers who call Greater Boston home. The weekends are intentionally unstructured, though here and there we include an ice breaker.  It is our philosophy the best way to network is to make friends.

So we play a lot of games. Epics games that last into the morning, most recently poker, Risk and Sardines. We explore the beauty of New England. Once we accidentally hiked the highest peak in Vermont and it was amazing. We tour nearby attractions such as Ben & Jerry's and the Mayflower Brewery to learn about the local economy. Then we cook. A lot. And it's always delicious.
