New Anchor Partners
We are pleased to announce our newest Anchor Partners: Project Ujima, based in Akron, Ohio; Montana State University Extension’s Community Development arm in Bozeman, Montana; and SDSU Extension in South Dakota.
Young People at the Forefront of Change
We have a history of school walkouts and students activism in the United States, which have led to positive and needed changes. One thing is clear – young people are deciding that their voice matters, and the country is starting to listen.
A new take on the role of volunteers in public engagement
As more local governments hire professionals to shape their public engagement strategy, we also need to make space for passionate community members to volunteer their time and expertise to make public engagement more effective.
Engage Your Community in Dialogue for Change
Our ultimate goal is to create positive community change that includes everyone, and we believe that our tools, advice, and resources will help foster that kind of change.
