Join Stay Work Play Executive Director Will Stewart at our October Coffee & Conversations as he discusses the results of the organization's 2023 survey of young people in New Hampshire. A follow up to a similar quality of life survey conducted in 2017, this post-pandemic survey shows what has changed—for the better and for the worse—about how young people feel about life here in the Granite State.
Will Stewart was named the Executive Director of Stay Work Play in September 2017. In this role he is responsible for the overall managment of Stay Work Play and oversees the development, growth, and implementation of the organization's mission, programs, and budget. He also serves as the organization's key spokesperson and as an advocate for the attraction and retention of younger workers in New Hampshire.
