FFCI Enticing Gen Y To Participate

WMBD 1470

The area’s new economic driver is reaching out to 25 to 39 year olds.

It’s the more the merrier with Focus Forward C-I. The economic model is about people involvement. One demographic is especially being targeted, according to policy steering committee member and State Representative Jehan Gordon-Booth.

And, that’s Generation Y.

Gordon-Booth attended a mixer for younger people Tuesday evening. Gordon-Booth says it’s important to get the Gen Y’s to have a voice.

The early evening event at Rhythm Kitchen drew about 50 people.

Gordon-Booth and State Senator Darin LaHood were among the speakers.
