So I have a theory about this community engagement work we’re doing. It’s about options for everyone and finding ways to connect to that one thing that makes it worthwhile for you to become involved in our community. Sure we want people to volunteer but if we can engage you in other ways, I’m all about that. In fact, we have a very broad definition of community engagement; it’s about sparking interests, learning, connecting and doing hands on community work to ultimately, strengthen Central Texas.
Take our Day of Caring event a few weeks ago. It was amazing and I was blown away by the number of people that came out to do real meaningful work that day. We had over 1,000 people doing, connecting & learning and I, for one, can see how much we impact the community when we come together. I think you should feel the good karma coming your way pretty soon! ;) But you don’t have to take my word for it, check out the volunteers in action!
As I mentioned before, we love giving you options and here’s some more…
Every day in Austin, we’re working to ensure each child has access to high-quality education, every family has the tools they need to be financially stable, and health and human services are readily available for all.
