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.
