Engage to Change comes out of discussions with organizations and a mapping process to catalog the varied modes of doing the work.
Several years ago, we were struck by the way some of our grantee partners were changing how they saw the people they serve, who are commonly seen as recipients or beneficiaries of the organization's expertise and services. Instead, a growing number of groups worked with their program participants as partners in making change in their own lives, the organization, and in the surrounding community. We hosted a series of conversations with a dozen New York City nonprofit service delivery organizations to discuss the motivation, benefits, and challenges of embracing this way of engaging clients and community members.
This conversation features Jamel Burgess, Youth Organizer of Future of Tomorrow Program at Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation.
