Community Outreach

Outreach is critical to sustain and expand programs and activities that engage all community members. New voices, new perspectives, and new populations of community residents bring life to any initiative.

Take the opportunity to iden­tify, under­stand, and involve varied pop­u­la­tions when plan­ning and executing any community activity or service.

  • Learn more about the cultures represented in your area.
  • Cultivate relationships and target communications.
  • Develop out­reach efforts and a work envi­ron­ment that iden­ti­fies, under­stands, and involves the diver­sity in your community.
