In the summer of 2004, the youth of Spontaneous were charged with the task of choosing an issue in their community and designing a Project of Change that would address this issue. The teens chose to focus on youth violence, and the lack of programming for teens in their community. In response, they created their own youth program at Spontaneous Celebrations called Beantown Society.

The vision of Beantown Society is to unite youth in Boston across race, class, culture, and neighborhood to end youth violence. We believe in changing youth's oppression, neglect-ion, rejection, and depression into youth power. We work towards this vision by offering a youth run after school program as well as workshops, projects and events based on youth interests. We provide a space for youth to express themselves, receive one-on-one support, and become leaders in their community.
