The Empower program is dedicated to partnering with neighborhood associations that seek to engage residents in their community. Active and engaged neighborhoods not only thrive but have a better sense of community that improves the quality of life for residents. This program seeks to provide resources and learning tools to emerging neighborhood leaders, while working with them to lead and implement a neighborhood project providing a community benefit. Through the hands-on collaborative project, the program hopes to help participants understand the benefits of community engagement and strengthening the sense of community. Engaged neighborhoods benefit from a healthier and positive environment where residents learn to love where they live.
The program seeks to partner with a small number of voluntary neighborhood groups to:
Help emerging neighborhood leaders refine their leadership skills
Increase level of participation, engage diverse groups and remain active for long-term success
Engage residents on a collaborative neighborhood project
Network with other neighborhood groups
Participate in mentoring opportunities
