Redwood City wants to help you create neighborhood projects, find opportunities to volunteer, and get inspired to join with others and build community together. When you're a Community Builder, you recognize that to do this, we can turn first of all to our neighbors and to local associations and institutions that lie at the heart of our communities.
Envision the community you’d like Redwood City to be - what's your passion, your interest, what inspires you? Whatever it is, there are many ways for you to get involved and engaged with your community.
There are nearly countless opportunities to help others - here are just a few links to websites where you can find your interest, your passion, something that might be “tapping you on the shoulder” – take that step, and join together to help improve our community.
Here are some great materials for Community Builders to use:
- Twelve Guiding Principles for Community Engagement
