Service & Civic Organizations

​Civic reflection offers service and civic organizations a chance to explore tough organizational questions, build community, and engage in challenging, thought-provoking conversation about the people and communities they serve. What kind of change are we making? How do communities have a voice? Who should be responsible for addressing poverty and why? Civic reflection helps service and civic organizations take a step back from their day-to-day work, think about their choices and commitments, and talk about how these might impact their colleagues, communities, and the people they serve.

What People Are Saying

"

I found the entire experience to be very affirming. It gave me a greater understanding of exactly what I do and its importance in the big picture - it also helped me... think more clearly not just about who we are and what we are actually doing, but who we are called to be and how that may be changing - and what should not change. It helped me as a leader, deeply and personally.

It was a great chance to hear a diverse perspective on service from leaders across the country. I think we often get siloed in our discussions about service in our own subcultures; I enjoyed this rare opportunity!
