Rebecca Trout is the Program Director of the All-America City Award & Communications  at the National Civic League. In this role she connects the over 500 AAC communities with resources around local good governance practices and civic engagement strategies through research, a mentorship program and monthly webinars. She also coaches potential applicant communities on what makes an All-America City and oversees all event management for the annual three-day award and peer-learning conference.

Rebecca is also in charge of communications and marketing at the League, managing the content and distribution of the League's newsletter, social media and website. Additionally, she serves as the assistant editor of the National Civic Review, managing the online design of the quarterly publication, as well as distribution.

Rebecca has over eight years of project management experience. She worked in the access department at the National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) from 2011-2015, where she helped expand the access to quality end-of-life care to typically underserved populations. Rebecca left NHPCO to pursue a passion of international service and travel with the Peace Corps. During her service in Botswana from 2015-2017, Rebecca helped to coordinate her village’s HIV/AIDS intervention plan. Additionally, she was part of a team which solicited a U.S. Embassy grant to fund and open a community youth center.

Rebecca was raised in Oklahoma and attended William Jewell College in Liberty, MO where she earned her B.A. in political science, international relations and critical thought and inquiry.

Rebecca has a passion for community service and activism and is thrilled to be at an organization which believes that the most complex social issues can be solved by creating equitable, thriving communities dedicated to civic engagement.
