Purpose of Community Connect

  • Community Connect encourages youth to initiate social (civic) change by taking them through a step by step journey. This involves building awareness, increasing knowledge and empowering them with skills and leadership tools to take action. 

  • These empowered youth play the role of bridging the gap between the community and urban local bodies to build collaborative governance systems. Thereby inspiring the youth  onto a long term social change journey.

Why is Civic Action Important? 

  • Increased dependence on local governments to resolve civic issues has burdened the governance systems and also fortified a lack of civic engagement on citizens’ part.

  • Involvement in civic action helps youth learn to interact with their community and develop the skills, values, and sense of empowerment necessary to become active citizens.

  • When citizens are engaged, they can exchange ideas, invest in finding solutions and employ efforts to address the day-to-day issues facing their communities.
