it all started when...

Ashley Kirsner, a former student of psychology, found her work regarding the ways that people connect or fail to connect with each other to be the most fascinating. She craved a way to use her diverse training to facilitate deeper interactions in everyday life. She found that her friend, Devin Karbowicz, had a similar desire, and together they founded communiT Boston. Taking its name from the nickname for the local public transportation system, communiT was a series of free monthly events held at T stations, designed to provide fun and unique ways for strangers to interact with each other.
