Community Engagement

We are here to serve

Our Approach to Community

Community engagement, community development and community capacity building are all terms that EMBOLDEN Action support.  The terms are slightly different but the work is the same.  We serve the community.  In today's societal climate, organizations are being challenged to engage in critical conversations and solutions about social change, equity and a myriad of complex issues.
