Community Organizing and Outreach

NRS assists local community leaders in building skills and leadership to better engage with the democratic process and make positive changes for their own community. We recognize that the power to affect change in the community and to sustain the work long-term, rests on the ability to develop resident leaders. Convening, facilitating, training and inspiring partners, stakeholders and/or community members are key aspects of most of our projects. We plan and coordinate effective meetings and workshops, and we strive to engage a wide spectrum of stakeholders and the community in project planning and implementation.
