What does Connecticut need to do to keep and attract Millennials?  Young Energetic Solutions (YES) is making a good start in recognizing that “Bolstering the millennial generation with dynamic, connected communities is a good thing for older and younger generations alike, as amenities such as walkability, access to transit and a variety of housing options are beneficial to all of us.”

YES is a collaboration of the Partnership for Strong Communities and Connecticut Main Street Center, aimed at empowering young people to create a vibrant Connecticut — a Connecticut where young people want to live. Building on the value gained in partnering with like-minded programs and organizations, YES is continuously forging partnerships with a variety of groups, in order to act as a resource for young people to effectuate positive change.
