Engage to Change Video Series: Neighbors Together

Explore how some nonprofits are shifting the way they engage the people they serve. Learn how community members moved from being recipients of expertise to becoming partners in transforming their own lives, the organization, and the surrounding community. In a series of conversations with a dozen New York City nonprofits, hear the motivation behind engaging clients and community members as agents of change in challenging times.

In this video we interview Cynthia Agyemang, Community Organizer & Amy Blumsack, Community Action Program Director with Neighbors Together.

    The connection between service provision and advocacy is so seamless here. I find this video is helpful paired with some of the tools on this site to give a quick illustration of what service and social change looks like before beginning a deeper dive into a learning circle or staff assessment process.
