President John F. Kennedy captured the essence of his generation’s passions when he gave his famous “only a few generations” speech at his 1961 inaugural address.

More than 50 years later, that same generation is cautiously watching the rise of my generation, the Millennials, also known as Generation-Y and the Baby Boom Echo.

We want Pittsburgh Millennials to talk about what matters to them and where they think they’re headed. So if you were born between the early 1980s to 2000s, we need your voices.

Tell us what you think in a 3 minute message

Below is a list of questions about a range of social, economic and political issues. We want to know about you and how you, as a Millennial, feel about these questions. Feel free to call back if you have more to say.

1. Give a call to this number (It’s a Google voicemail box we’re going to be using to compile voices from around the city): (412) 256-8783

2. Start the voicemail with:

 “My name is _________, I’m from _______________, and I was born in 19_____.”

3. Choose which questions you connect with the most. The order of the questions is not important, and you can pick and choose.

That’s it! If you have any other questions, you can always email us at: esspgh@wesa.fm

The Questions:

Why do you choose to live in Pittsburgh?

What do you want people to know about your generation?

How would you describe your friends?

How important is it for you to give back to your community, and how do you do it?

How would you describe your spiritual and/or political views? Are they similar or different from your parents’ beliefs?
