SteerFW is a young professionals group in Fort Worth, Texas. Founded in 2011 by Mayor Betsy Price, it became a non-profit entity in late 2016. Its primary goal is to foster civic engagement among the young people moving to Funky Town (and broader Tarrant County) every day. We're here to be a resource and point of connection to help you understand the best ways to become involved in this city. You might make some great friends along the way, too.
Fort Worth is a growing, vibrant city. It's the 16th-largest city in the U.S. as of 2017, and Tarrant County has the sixth-largest growth rate in the U.S. (By some estimates, the only city itself growing faster than Fort Worth is Austin, our 35-South neighbor.) New people are moving here every day -- and often people with no context for Texas before their arrival. The dynamic of the city is shifting as a result, and young professionals are going to be a driving force in what Fort Worth looks like in 5, 10, 15, and 20 years. SteerFW is about bringing those people together now in an effort to build the connections and relationships necessary to make sure we remain a top-flight, best-in-class city for generations to come.
