The End of The Tour
mytown ceased operations on August 31, 2010 due to a lack of operating funds. For the board, staff and youth guides this has been a difficult decision, but was made to preserve the spirit and mission of mytown.
We want to thank everyone in Boston who has been a part of mytown, from our committed funders to our passionate Board members to the many leaders on our staff.
But we are especially grateful to the youth guides, for your hard work and for dedicating a part of your life to developing yourself as a leader committed to creating a stronger Boston. Whether you worked at mytown for one summer, two phases or your entire high school career, you have contributed in valuable ways to this dynamic organization and to the many diverse communities and histories of Boston. You leave an incredible legacy.
Together, we have accomplished some incredible things!
14,000 people have taken tours
The stories of Boston social activists that otherwise would be neglected or lost have been honored and recognized
The perceptions of what youth can do in Boston have changed
