About the League's Community Assistance Services:
The National Civic League’s community assistance philosophy encourages communities to view civic engagement as more than presenting information, or distributing questionnaires (though both are important); instead, we promote listening to, and learning from, residents consistently and using those insights to shape how programs are administered, designed and executed. We set a different expectation for engagement.
- Identifying ways to move from conversation to action, from ideas to implementation
- Ensuring that engagement reaches beyond those who typically engage
- Developing materials and processes to fit the unique context, challenges and history of the community
- Designing and implementing public engagement processes that lead to enhanced resident knowledge, input and buy-in
- Ensuring ongoing participation through newly formed networks across the community
