The Vital Role of Community Connectors

The Vital Role of Community Connectors

A passionate group of community builders gather at DePaul University

A highlight for me from the recent ABCD Gathering in Chicago was a discussion I facilitated with a passionate group on the vital role of Community Connectors.

We talked about the differences between the people who are natural Connectors and exist in every neighbourhood (unpaid), community initiatives that include a paid role of ‘Community Connector’ and larger agencies who are creating Connector roles within their institutions.

We all agreed that Community Connectors are vital to the growth and impact of all community work and committed to each other to continue supporting and celebrating this role.
