Civic engagement

We can train your civic or nonprofit organization how to recruit board members, volunteers, and staff from Vermont’s various ethnic and cultural communities as well as work with you to improve retention of these valuable human resources.

We cultivate leadership among ethnic, racial and linguistic minorities through our Resolve to Get Involved! initiative that links over 100 minority leaders with information on civic engagement opportunities. We encourage all residents to

  • Run for public office,
  • Attend public meetings and hearings,
  • Volunteer for political campaigns and voter registration drives,
  • Become advocates of issues of community concerns,
  • Seek positions on local volunteer boards or submit applications for any of the gubernatorial boards and commissions.
